You may be able to set the cell styles for every workbook/worksheet. Take and re-format your exported spreadsheet the way you would like it to look, then highlight those cells and poke through the menus until you find the cell formatting options (I don't use Works that much, so I'm not sure of the actual menu path) and see if there is an option for formatting those cells in that manner as a general default cell format.

Add a excel format in tally


Sir,

What to Export ?
Tally has a facility to export its data to other applications like spreadsheets, word processing software and other database software. Export of data is provided mainly for summaries and statement reports like Trial Balance, Stock Summary, etc. You can export it to another company using Tally that will import it directly.

How to Export?
You can export all reports and statements. For this a separate export button is provided in right hand button bar. To do this go to any report e.g. day book you to export or any statement e.g. balance sheet. You would see export button on top right hand side on button bar. Press it and a screen would pop up with export related options.

The first option is format of data to be exported namely ASCII, HTML, SDF, and XML. Which ever application you are importing this data in would decide in which format you should export the data.
For statements like balance sheets and trial balance which we use to send and import file in word and excel etc. HTML format is good. We need minimum formatting in this format while using it in MS Word and MS Excel.
certain applications accept continuous data where we have defined field length. Then ASCII format is better.
For application which accept SDF and XML format these formats can be chosen.

Give a file name and the exported file is saved in the parent Tally directory on your computer. You can now use that file to import its contents into another program, send it as it is (say if it is HTML file) to a colleague or view it using a browser.

Thanks
Good Luck

Can not print because pc is out of memory


Hi,

I would appreciate if you coulld tell me whats the version of Ms works you are using ??
Can try some steps :--
Try these steps first

Printer and Faxes (Start>Settings or via Control Panel )


Right-click on the printer's name.
Select 'Properties'.
Select the 'Advanced' tab
Select 'Print directly to printer'.
If that still doesn't solve the problem you may need to completely uninstall works and use the works and Windows cleanup utility before reinstalling.

Either you need to upgrade your version of Excel or the person creating the spreadsheet needs to save it in a format for compatability. For example, the person who created the workbook simply needs to do File and Save As. Under type, one can choose a format for older versions of Excel.

Hope this helps!

The Yahoo mail program I use - Classic has been , for the past wekk or so, NOT allowing the REPLY or ATTACH buttons to work. It's driving me crazy and Yahoo are NOT helpful.


Try switching to the new format and see if that works for you.. If it does and you don't like it..switch back and see if you can reply and add attachements when you revert back.. I didn't think I would like the new format but it kinda grows on you and has some nice features the classic does not..

Dell sound problem


sounds like the virus is still in the computer. you have to get something like Mc Afee virus protection, or Symantecs Spysweeper to get rid of it, and then you should be able to reinstazll the driver. If this does not work, try doing a system restore to the date before this started happening. to do this, go start programs, accessories, tools/system tools, the rest is self explanatory.
