Business Promotion or related terms:: take the journal register and use Alt+F12 >> Narration containing >> Business promotion expenses (where in most of companies maintains this account to manage the illegal cash flows)
Columnar :: Use columnar utility in tally to sort, or for calculation by exporting the register into excel. It will be more useful for Statutory duties calculation i.e ED, VAT/CST, Customs etc
