UDIMAGIC v5.0 Release 1.6


UDIMagic v5.0 Release 1.6 comes with a Status-bar which :-
1) Alerts the user if Tally is NOT running or if the Tally Port / IP Address settings are incorrect.
2) Allows the user to change the Settings.
3) Allows selection of Company in Tally into which you wish to import data.

a) By default, the Status bar is hidden. You can use the Roll-down button (which appears at the right-bottom corner of UDIMagic) to display the Status Bar.
b) By default, UDIMagic imports data into the current Company in Tally. You can select / change the Company using the Status Bar.

The SCROLLHORIZONTALLY attribute was introduced in UDIMagic v5.0 Release 1.0. This feature supports looping mechanism to loop through the Columns in Excel Sheet. The current release has around 50% to 80% speed improvement in cases wherein the aforesaid SCROLLHORIZONTALLY attribute is used.

BoundToTally (for Advanced users only)
You can use the following option in UDIMagic.ini (configuration file) to specify the Tally details (with which UDIMagic is bound). This is required only if you wish to upload data to another Tally in LAN or Internet.
