Tally data migration
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:
1.Migrate Data allows the user to upgrade Tally 7.2 data to Tally ERP 9
2.Migrate TCP allows the user to upgrade TCP files created in Tally 7.2 to Tally ERP 9
3.Restore 7.2 Backup – allows the user to restore data backup taken in Tally 7.2
