Please let me know how is it possible to convert qvds in a directory to be converted into csvs without using QlikView?
Can we know the reason behind you want to do this? I understand that, Requirement is like but QVD is purely Qlik file
There is a requirement to migrate .qvd files into .tde files of Tableau for which we initially want to convert the .qvds into and intermediate form of .csv and then load them into Tableau and convert into .tde files.
You can read QVD files and store as text files using the (free) QV personal edition or (also free) Qlik Sense desktop.
You can load all the qvds and store in the CSV by using below Store Command.
Store Sales into Sales.csv(txt); // store sales table in the form of CSV file
if you found this helpful, please mark helpful or correct.
See the answers mentioned is right when we are opening the qlikview file and adding the STORE statement. But what I need is to convert QVDs present in one directory into csvs in the same or any other directories without even opening the QlikView interface.
I agree with Bhasker Kumar and that is the way to convert QVD to txt format.
Just to be clear, we also received a similar request to convert QVD files to TDE for building reports in Tableau.
QVD is a Qlik readable format and it is native Qlik.
If you need for other purpose, please use Alteryx
