Case Study I -  XML Request and Response Formats

Let us consider different scenarios to understand the Request and Response XML structure.

Export

o Request to Export Data and Corresponding response

o Request to Export different TDL components and the corresponding response

Import

o Request to Import Data and the corresponding response Execute

o Request to Execute Action and Corresponding response

Export

Request to Export Data and Corresponding Response

Tags used for sending a request to export data from Tally.ERP 9 <HEADER> contains the following:

Tag < TALLYREQUEST > must contain value Export

Tag < TYPE > must contain value Data and

Tag < ID > should contain the Name of the TDL Report

< BODY > contains the following:

Tag < DESC > can contain report settings like Company Name, Format, etc. as desired which should be enclosed within < STATICVARIABLES > tag.

If the Report Name specified in the <ID> tag does not exist within Tally running at the spec-ified port, the TDL defining the Report & other supporting definition needs to be described and enclosed within tag <TDL>.

In the above XML request, < HEADER > describes the expected result.

The value of the Tag < TALLYREQUEST > is Export which indicates that some information needs to be exported from Tally.

The value of the Tag < TYPE > is Data which indicates that the data needs to be exported from Tally.

The value of the Tag < ID > must be a TDL Report Name, if the previous Tag <TYPE> contains Data and Tag < TALLYREQUEST > contains Export. Any Report which needs to be exported from Tally can be specified within this Tag.

< BODY > tag contains parameters, if any. Additional settings for the report like format required, company from which data is required, etc. can be passed within < STATICVARIABLES > Tag enclosed within < DESC > Tag. All variables are considered as Tag Names and their value are enclosed within these tags. For example , in the above XML, variables SVEXPORTFORMAT and EXPLODEFLAG are considered as Tags and their respective values $$SysName:XML and Yes are enclosed within. TDL Internal Function SysName is evaluated at Tally end and the response is being sent accordingly.

In the above XML Request, Create action is used. Any of the following system formulae can be used to choose the required behaviour in case the system encounters a ledger with the same name. The behavior is for the treatment of the Opening Balance which is being imported. DupModify specifies that the current Opening Balance should be modified with the new one that is being imported.

DupIgnoreCombine specifies that the ledger if exists need to be ignored. DupCombine specifies the system to combine both the Opening Balances. Ideally, this option is used when Data pertaining to Group Companies are merged together into a single company. On processing the above request for importing ledgers, the requested ledgers are created in Tally and the following response is received:

<RESPONSE>

<CREATED>2</CREATED>

<ALTERED>0</ALTERED>

<LEDGER NAME="ICICI" Action = "Alter">

<NAME>HDFC</NAME>

Name of an existing ledger ICICI will get altered to HDFC. In case of Deletion, following line suffices

<LEDGER NAME="ICICI" Action = "Delete">
