How to find which app/QVF creates a specific QVD file?

Hello,

Is there a way to find out which app/QVF file creates a specific QVD file?

We have over a hundred tasks where some apps do the ETL and want to know which app creates or/and updates a QVD file.

If you open the qvd-file in an editor the first part of it is in xml and there is a tag <CreatorDoc>

you can also load the qvd into an app and read the Creator doc, if the qvd is too big for an outside editor.

LOAD CreatorDoc FROM [lib://Connection_Name/QVDFileName.qvd] (XmlSimple, Table is [QvdTableHeader]);
