Sometimes ago,  I have write about tips and tricks in tally. Today we will learn about various short cut keys available in tally. Short cut keys help to save our time and speed up work so an active user of tally, you must be familiar with such short cut keys in tally.erp 9.

Most short cut keys are self explanatory, however i have written a bit more information wherever it is required for a newbie to understand it much better.

To Duplicate a voucher

Go to  List of Vouchers

Press ALT + 2

It will create a voucher similar to the one where you positioned the cursor and used this key combination. Now you can post a duplicate voucher or can modify amount of new voucher. This short cut help is posting new entries for similar heads of account with different amount . Say when you have to post monthly entry for bank interest or rent etc, you can use this short cut keys for faster entry.

To Add a voucher

When you are viewing a report or voucher list and you want to add a new voucher, then you don’t need to go main menu of tally or voucher entry screen. you can do this job straight away from here

Press ALT + A and enter a new voucher and its all done!

To create a master at a voucher screen (if it has not been already assigned a different function, as in reports like Balance Sheet, where it adds a new column to the report)

ALT + C

At voucher entry and alteration screens, at a field where you have to select a master from a list. If the necessary account has not been created already, use this key combination to create the master without quitting from the voucher screen

when you are middle of posting an entry, and want to create a new group then just from the filed of ledger account press ALT+C and you will be prompted to new ledger account creation.

you can also create a new group from by this way, or a new item ledger,new unit, currency from the respective field

Another use of this short cut keys can be done from the amount field of an entry.(To access Auto Value Calculator in the amount field during voucher entry)

Suppose you are posting an entry and you want to enter the amount of 1008*10% then from the amount field press ALT+C and calculate 1008*10% and the result will be automatically captured by the amount field.

  30. Mukkaram Siddique says:

    Dear sir…
    Most of the time it happens like we are entering a voucher and are switching between tally windows…
    may be for one window while editing I forgot to press ‘Insert’ to edit narration….

    is there any undo key in tally as there is in MS-Excel and MS-Word…?
    so that the data lost because of pressing ‘space bar’ or other reasons can be retrieved back….?
