How to import data from excel into Tally on Remote Computer?

Tally on Cloud / Remote System

When Tally ERP is installed on a remote system, you may face certain challenges while importing excel data into Tally. This happens as ONLY the first instance of Tally is assigned the Port Number and other instances of Tally cannot communicate with external applications. To resolve this, you must change the Tally Port number again and again.

Here are some guidelines to import data into Tally installed on Cloud / Remote System:

1. Keep Separate Tally folders for each user

Install Tally in separate folders for each user. Example :
c:\Tally-UserA
c:\Tally-UserB
c:\Tally-UserC

You must also specify the data path for each Tally installation. The data path must be the same if all users want to access the same data.

2. Tally Port Number Setting

Each user must set a unique Port Number using the option "Gateway of Tally || F12 [Advanced Configuration]"

Example :
Port Number : 9001 (for user of c:\Tally-UserA)
Port Number : 9002 (for user of c:\Tally-UserB)
Port Number : 9003 (for user of c:\Tally-UserC)

3. Separate udiMagic folders for each user

Install udiMagic in separate folders for each user. Example :
c:\udiMagic-UserA
c:\udiMagic-UserB
c:\udiMagic-UserC

4. Port Setting in udiMagic

Each user must set the Port Number in udiMagic SETTINGS. The Port Number must be same as assigned to your Tally.

Example :
Port Number : 9001 (for user of c:\Tally-UserA)
Port Number : 9002 (for user of c:\Tally-UserB)
Port Number : 9003 (for user of c:\Tally-UserC)


Remote Excel to Tally - How it Works?
Now, when a userA starts Tally (from his folder c:\Tally-UserA), it runs on Port 9001 and when the user starts udiMagic (from c:\udiMagic-UserA), it connects to Tally on port 9001.

Similary, when userB starts Tally (from c:\Tally-UserB), it runs on port 9002. And when udiMagic is started (from c:\udiMagic-UserB), it connects to Tally on port 9002.
