Give the number for the first voucher. Usually it is 1. You can set it to any number you want. Tally.ERP 9 will auto-increment from this number for subsequent vouchers. However, the numbering of vouchers also depends on other variables selected by you, explanations of which will follow hereafter.
Width of Numerical Part
You may leave it blank to let Tally.ERP 9 automatically adjust the width according to the number. However, if you would like to have a specific width to be fixed then set the same. e.g., 3.
Prefill with ZERO?
When the width is specified, the digits before the voucher number are left blank if this option is set to ‘No’.
E.g. Sales Invoice No: 1
If this option is set Yes, it pre-fills the space with zeroes based on the width of numerical part specified.
E.g. If the Width of Numerical Part is specified as 3, and if Pre-fill with Zero is set to Yes, then it display the voucher number as below:
Sales Invoice No: 001
If Width of Numerical Part is specified as 4, then it displays the voucher number as below:
Sales Invoice No: 0001 and so on.
