    Hi,

    For inventory, we have more than 3000 stock items in Tally.ERP 9 (Release 6.0.3), the item name are of typical format "XXXXXX|My Item Desc ...." where xxxxxx is the item number and 'My Item desc" is the name/description of the item. They are both separated by a pipe character "|". There is no space between item number, pipe character and item description. Just FYI, most item descriptions are pretty long.

    We want to alter the name of all 3000+ stock items (by replacing the pipe character with a space).
    In Tally, there is option to alter multiple/all stock items through: Gateway of Tally > Inventory Info. > Stock Item > Multiple Stock Items > Alter. But still, that is very time consuming process as we have more than 3000 items names to alter.
    I am looking for a faster solution like a TDL code or XML code; an add-on with excel template to replace old name with new name; or a backend solution, etc.

    Can someone please guide me? Your help will be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Narendra

    I figured a workaround.
    Used the attached excel macro to rename stock item name/description and alias. It is used to generate an XML file that can be imported to tally via. import masters to do the task.

    NOTE:
    1. KINDLY BACKUP YOUR TALLY DATA BEFORE PROCEEDING.
    2. PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE ATTACHED FILE CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING.
    3. While adding/removing/renaming alias names, attached sheet will ignore cells filled only with space characters (ASCII character 32). i.e. same will be treated as an empty cell, and therefore, it will remove any existing alias names against the corresponding stock item.

    Hope this helps those having similar problem.
