Extract data source metadata from QVW


I am using Qlikview .NET library to read a QVW file. Specifically I am using Interop.QlikView library within the QlikView executable.

I am interested in extracting the metadata stored within QVW file to get information such as - data source type, data source tables, data source fields and more such details. The Interop.QlikView library does not seem to expose APIs for these details.

Please let me know if someone has come across similar requirements and found a way to read the above kind of details.

Highly appreciate help/pointers for my question.

If this space is not the right space for this question, please suggest what would be a good space for this question.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Extract data source metadata from QVW

Unfortunately you have no information about datasources used. The only way to get then would be to analyze the script and this is not easy...
