OpenERP – Tally Migration


Tally is a popular accounting software.

Integrating OpenERP with Tally is of Vital importance when it comes to Indian market.

As a first big step towards it, We,, decided to write a module which can help migrating accounts from Tally to OpenERP.

Here I am going to discuss about our  new module.


  • Load Chart of account from Tally.
  • Optionally includes Opening Balance


1) Tally:

  •  Install the module which is available at
  •  Go to your tally (9.2+ Version):
  • choose F12 and set server type as Both.
  • Set port to 9000 ( or any available port )

2) OpenERP:

  • Navigate to Administration -> Customization -> Load Data from Tally and choose Get Accounts menu.
  • Give the IP address where Tally is exposed with port 9000. For eg,
  •  Check, Opening Balance option, If you need opening balance as well from Tally.
  •  Click the Proceed button.
  •  Fill the module name, author and other details in the next screen.
  •  Submit and download the resulting module to a location.
  •  Install the downloaded module .

Now you will see the all the accounts from tally be imported to OpenERP and populated in the Chart of Accounts.

1) Currently this module is meant to work only with OpenERP V5. Soon, I will be upgrading it to V6.

2) It can be considered as alpha stage as the module needs rigorous testing.

Cheers 🙂
