There are a number of specific QlikView files, if that is what you mean.

Qvw - contains one application/document

Qvd - contains data in a single table

Qvx - like a Qvd, but an open format

Qvs - a text file containing script logic that is easy to reuse

Hi,

Check this

QVW: Stands for Qlikview Worksheet (The application file which holds your reports/dashboard/script/data model and connection strings)

   QVD : Stands for Qlikview Data (One of the optimize layer of data which has been fetched from the database, qvd is a patent technology of qliktech and qlikview applications reads data 100 time faster as compared to any other sources because data get stores in optimized format. Only Qlikvew application can read the data from QVD. Its always better to fetch the data from from database first and then load the data into your application)

   QVX: Stands for Qlikview Data Exchange (If you wish to make your own connector that could create a connectivity to Qlikview files, One of the efficient and optimize way to fetch data from the database. Mainly used if you are not using ODBC/OLEDB)

QVS:

1) It can be an abbreviation for QlikView Server which is a service that publishes QlikView documents so that you can analyze data over Internet.

2) It can be a file extension "QlikView Script file" which is just a plain text file containing a QlikView script. You can create it from inside the script editor (File -> Export to script file) and you can use it using an include command (Insert -> Include statement).
