Data split in tally|Think for due date while posting entries in tally

Data splitting in tally is very necessary upon completion of the financial year.Data splitting means separation of two financial year of the company data. Data spiting help you to avoid creating a new company for every financial year. If you create a new company for the new financial year, then you will have to go a long way e.g. creating all the new ledger, grouping, opening balances sheet further, there will not be consistency in the financial reports. So, the best solutions is to split your data between two difference year. It will also speed up your tally software and it will require less MB spaces.

Recently one tally nine reader Ms.Shakuntala, raised a problem while she was trying to split the company for the new financial year starting from 1st April, 2010. When she try to split the data, she was facing an error namely incorrect due date for bill ref. no…. due to this, she was not able to split her data. After modifying that particular bill due date, she had successfully splited her data.

Tally support helped her to identify the particular bill

Let me explain you this problem and solutions in more details.

when you create a supplier ledger, it will ask for default credit period. I will suggest you, even if you don’t have any credit policy for your supplier/debtors, you should specify a default credit period of 15 days, 30 days or whatever you wish so.Do this job starting from the first bill of the  .supplier. IF you set a default credit period for a supplier/customer after entering few bills, then re enter all the past bill of that supplier again setting a default due date.

If you don’t do this, then tally system will automatically pick a due date which might be a date prior to the commencing of the current financial year and due to this, you will not be able to split your data!

If you are facing such problem, and not able to identify that particular bill  which is creating problem in data splitting then don’t’ worry. Here is a way to find out that bill. First of all, run your data splitting wizard and it will tell you the reference number of the bill which has an incorrect due date.After that, following process, will help you to find out this bill.

Go to Display from the main menu of tally.


Select Statements of accounts


Select outstanding


select Payable  (you may follow the same process step by step in case of receivable)


It will show you all the bill reference number, voucher number, name of supplier and its due date. alternatively you

Alternatively, Press Alt+F12

and select the criteria as shown below


in the blank field here, type the particular ref number of the bill and you will find that bill which is creating the problem. Once you find out that bill, go to alteration mode of that bill, and remove the due date . keep it blank or select any bill falling under the current FY and accept the screen.

Do share your experience with tally nine readers if ever you have used tally support.

  8. Mahendra says:

    Go to display, then account statement, the Outstanding,

    select date starting of your fY and ending FY
    You will find there every bill. check one by one which contains ref. no. 31 (alternatively Press Alt +F12, select bill type, ref no. containing 31 and hit the button)
    Once you find out that particular bill,then go to alteration mode of that bill no. 31
    In voucher ref. no. you will find the bill no. 31 and the due date, just remove that date or change it to any date which should be within the current FY and after bill date
    accept the voucher and then start. i will work
    If you are unable to find out the bill from Payable, then try the same procedure from Receivable

    Hello jitendra, Go to Katni tile Works Pvt. Ltd then Display statement of accounts Receivable of payable where the ledger of Mahakoshal is available
    Now see the bill wise reference and find out the ref name starting with Mahakoshal refractories

  38. Hello Rahul,
    If you using latest version of Tally.ERP 9, then Data spliting will generate an error file which will tell you the cause of the problems. Generally there is an option of fixing the error at the splitting page itself. Again it depends on the version of your software.
