      Dear Riz,

      Thanks for your query… If you don’t have super user rights then you are not able to do this job. Only superusers have full access of operate all the account. If you have simple user account then it is not possible.

        Thanks Sharma for your reply.
        I have super user rights,
        I want restrict other people (partially) to edit a specific accounts (etc. banks).
        e.g.
        I have normal account for BANK entries, all users are posting in this account on daily basis.
        SAY, if i tally my BANK account and after this I don’t want anyone to disturb my ledger.
        for this purpose I want a simple lock for every User (below Super user) to restrict any data entry after specific date.
        I think my may be clear to you.

    Hi sir,

    please tell me how to add one more line in the middle of a sales invoice.
    i mean if i want to change a sales invoice it has many entries of different item. and i want to add one more item in the middle of invoice. so is it possible if yes then how.
    as i know how to delete an entry of an item by pressing ctrl+d so is there any shortcut to insert an entry.
    please tell me i will be very grateful.

      Hi Majid,

      Thanks for writing. First of all If you want to add more lines in the sales invoice then you have a choice to create another sales voucher in the Tally Software. GOT>Accounts INFO>VOUCHER TYPES>CREATE.
