  • Dear Rahul,

    Please check which mode of Tally you are using.
    If you are using educational mode, Tally will accept the date only 1st, 2nd and 30th or 31st of that month.

    While changing the financial year, instead of using F2 (Period) command, I clicked Company info (F3) & altered the date by mistake.
    Now while I open Tally ERP9, it shows the Error which reads as: “Company date details changed. Need to rewrite before proceeding. OK”
    While I click on OK, the software Tally ERP9 closes thereby hindering the process of rewriting the data.
    Please guide me how to come out of the problem?

  • Dear Joginder Singh

    Please take a back up of your data
    Open Tally, dont open the company, Press Ctrl + Alt + R
    Rewrite your company once

    After rewriting, try and check the company data

    Best Wishes
