Last Sold Item Rate in Tally

The PriceList feature in Tally is great for keeping track of your prices for each customer or group of customers.

However, there are businesses where the prices change frequently and it is not feasible to maintain a pricelist every time. Also, sometimes even though you maintain a pricelist, still you may need to change the price on a case-to-case basis for a particular party.

These are the situations where the "Last Sold Item Rate" module is useful.

With this module, Tally will automatically show the rate at which you sold the selected item to the selected party last time. No matter when the party last purchased this item from you - it could be yesterday or it could be a year ago, still the module will automatically fill the Rate column with the Last Sold rate. Of course, you can modify this rate for the current transaction.

If this sounds useful to you, send me a mail at for more details.

Tally 7.2 still available

For users who are still looking for Tally 7.2, there is good news, as some old stock is available here and there, including myself.

Tally 7.2 version is sufficient for people with simple accounting needs, but keep in mind that new updates are available only for version 9.

So who will buy 7.2 ? Users who already have 7.2 at one of their branches will need an identical version at other branches for data interoperability.

Also, there is a good price difference between versions 7.2 and 9, so price conscious users will find 7.2 sufficient for their simple accounting needs.

Drop me a mail at if you are looking to buy Tally 7.2 or Tally 9.

Easy PriceList module in Tally

Tally allows you to create pricelist of items for different parties. But this feature lacks an important navigation feature.

Tally forces you to select a stock group or All Items for which to create the pricelist. If each stock group has several hundred items, and you want to change or enter the price of a particular item, you have to scroll down the list one by one until you arrive at the right item.

Now this problem can be solved by customization. The customized PriceList module can add a button for searching for a particular item, and show only that item in the screen. After you are done with this item, save the PriceList and again choose a different item.

Note that this customization is useful only if you want to change / alter the price of specific items in a group. If you have to enter the prices of all the items in the group, then the default Tally PriceList feature will suffice for you.
