Data created in Tally 7.2 or TCP (Tally Compliant Product) files created for use with Tally 7.2 cannot be used with Tally.ERP 9. Hence, Data and TCP files need to be upgraded for use with Tally.ERP 9. The Tally Data Migration Tool helps users to upgrade Data and TCP files in order to be compliant with Tally.ERP 9. A valid Tally.ERP 9 license is required to upgrade Data or TCP files from Tally 7.2 to Tally.ERP 9.
Tally 6.3 users can use the migration tool to rewrite data to Tally 7.2 and then migrate to Tally.ERP 9. A logical migration of data from the earlier version of Tally 9 will occur when you load the company for the first time in Tally.ERP 9.
To Start the Migration Tool
By default the Tally Data Migration Tool is available in the Tally.ERP 9 folder.
To start the migration tool double click on the tally72migration.exe
The Tally Data Migration Tool and Tally.ERP 9 screens open simultaneously.
The Migrate Company menu has the following options:
Migrate Data – allows the user to upgrade Tally 7.2 data to Tally.ERP 9
Migrate TCP – allows the user to upgrade TCP files created in Tally 7.2 to Tally.ERP 9
Restore 7.2 Backup - allows the user to restore data backup taken in Tally 7.2
Migration Messages Pane
The migration status is displayed in the Migration Messages pane
The Calculator pane in the Tally.ERP 9 screen displays any error messages that appear during the migration process.
Note: It is recommended to the user to close all other applications before commencing Data/TCP migration as it consumes time and system resources. It is also recommended to avoid interruptions during the migration process as this may lead to incomplete migration of Data/TCP files and you have to repeat the migration process once again.
