A .qvs file is a .txt file containing (part of) a QlikView script.

The extension .qvs is used to signal some text editors that they should highlight QlikView keywords and constructs. For that to happen, you need to load a syntax definition file in your text editor configuration. Check out Notepad++ for an example.

However, you can call them whatever you like (even MyProgram.QlikViewScript) and include them just the same.

text file and qvs both or same

while exporting the script into notepad u will give file type as .qvs

like that while saving if u want text file u can give .txt file

here these files we will load through include statment

qvs file will get extension in script  qvs.config

text file is  will get like  txt.config
