Summary of Post
In Tally ERP 9, We are able to delete a voucher in case we do not want that entry. There is a problem in deleting a voucher.Suppose the entry to be deleted is on back date and a lot of vouchers entered after that entry, The voucher number after deleting the entry will come down with one number.
Why to cancelling voucher instead of deleting ?
For example You have entered vouchers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 and you want to delete voucher number 7.In such case,after deleting number 7 the voucher number 8 will become 7 and 9 to 8 and 10 to 9. This will create a big issue in your documentation. If you are deleting a sales entry,the invoice number after deleted voucher will change.The invoices already issued to the customer will have to be replaced. To overcome such situations tally provide another option called cancelling of voucher .
