Creating Simple Units of Measure in Tally.ERP 9

Stock Items are mainly purchased and sold on the basis of quantity. The quantity in turn is measured by units. In such cases, it is necessary to create the Unit of Measure. The Units of Measure can either be simple or compound. Examples of simple units are: nos., metres, kilograms, pieces etc.

To create Simple Units of Measure,

Go to Gateway of Tally > Inventory Info > Units of Measure > Create

The Unit Creation screen is displayed as shown.

A brief explanation of each field in the Unit Creation screen is given below:

Type

This field will show the Type of Units.

  • Simple

  • Compound.

Simple units are nos, pcs, etc. Compound unit is a combination of two simple units.

By default Tally.ERP 9 will show the Simple unit for creating the unit of measure.

You can select the Compound Units by clicking on that field or by using SHIFT+TAB [cursor will go to the previous field].

Symbol

Define the symbol of the unit, e.g., Nos. This symbol is used in all displays and printouts.

Formal Name

Specify the formal name of the symbol, e.g. Numbers. This formal name is useful during the consolidation of data of different companies, where the symbols might be the same but are assigned to different units. The formal name will be used to match them.

Number of decimal places

In this field you can specify the decimal places for the Units from 0 to 4. This field is useful for Units measured in fractions.

Example:

Kilogram unit. 1.255 Kgs, here 1 is for Kg and fraction 255 is for gram. For this unit, number of decimal places required is 3.
