Learn how to choose the printer you print to from your Tally software program.

Tally is an accounting software program widely used in India. Tally comes in different versions to fit the needs of the business that is using the software and to designate older and newer versions of the software program. You can print from Tally in three different formats: Dot Matrix, Neat or Draft mode. When you choose to print from Tally the program uses the default printer setup for the computer you are printing from, but you do have the option to change the printer in Tally.

Tally is a software program in use primarily in businesses and companies in India.

Some versions of Tally go beyond supporting just the accounting functions of a company. For example, Tally's ERP software, which stands for enterprise resource planning, integrates the internal and external processes of the company to track and manage financial resources, planning and more.

Another recent version of Tally works with retail shops and e-commerce websites to provide POS, or point of service, software. This version of Tally integrates cash register or website sales on the front end of the sale with the back-end processes in the accounting department of the company. The software also helps the company with inventory tracking, invoicing and other aspects that relate to accounting and sales.
