During this weekend I was playing with my old laptop having Windows and Tally installed. Instantly I played with tally and tried to check that if i can integrate it with OpenERP. I get some solutions on my first investigation that allows to access data outside tally, many solutions works on the windows with the .NET, C# or Vb 6.0.
During my investigation I found that, there are two ways to access data of tally, one is using Tally ODBC Driver
and the second is communicating to Tally server through XmlHttpRequest
. The second method is appropriate if we want to export date from Tally to OpenERP.
Thanks to the example given by http://www.rtslink.com/visualbasic.html
, It gives me clear idea how I can interact with the Tally data. I can read and write the data from and to Tally easily through any application. Based on the example I have prepared, It is a small prototype that imports all vouchers
from Tally, look at below for code
|Read all vouchers from Tally
This code will return xml data that describe the detailed list of vouchers including payment, receipt, sales, purchase and contra. Before importing vouchers I think its better to imports all master data
like Accounts, Products, Inventory, Tax, Etc..
