How to edit,delete a voucher in tally

Last Updated on

Tally permits to edit and delete vouchers entered. It depends upon the privilege assigned to individual users. This means that not all users can edit / delete the vouchers, only authorized users or administrators can do this, if you assigned privileges. We will be providing a detailed tutorial on how to set privileges later.  To edit and delete a voucher in tally there are two methods,

Edit voucher from voucher entry screen itself.

We are permitted to edit any previously saved vouchers from the voucher screen itself. To do this you must know the date of the voucher entry.

Let us illustrate this with a previously saved entry as an example

Assume that we entered a voucher on 31.05.2012 –

  • Received commission Rs 1000.00

The amount was mistakenly entered Rs 1000, Change it to 2500.00

To do this

Go to

Gateway of Tally>>Accounting vouchers

Now we are in a voucher screen, the voucher type displayed might be last used voucher; here in our example Payment voucher. Notice the date of the voucher, and change the date 31.05.2012 as the voucher was entered on that date.


Now press PgUp Key from the keyboard. For the first time there is confirmation asked to quit the current screen


Press Y or Enter Key

The saved voucher will be displayed, press PguP again until the desired voucher will display in front, then make necessary changes and save the screen.


Go to daybook

Gateway of tally>>Display>>Daybook

Now highlight the voucher to be modified , to highlight use up and down arrow key


Press enter to have the voucher modification screen


Make desired changes and accept the screen.

In second method you can go Ledger (Gateway of tally>>Display>>Account book>>Ledger  ) instead of  day book and do the same thing
