Not quite sure what your exact issue is.

There should be a QVW that writes that QVD, the 'creator'. If you can't locate this QVW, the creator should also be stated in the XML part of the QVD (e.g. by opening the QVD in a text editor).

Find the script part that creates and stores the table written to the QVD. Add the fields you want.

you need to find source from where qvd is generating and add few more columns which you want to add there it self.

Generally there will be one QVW which  generates QVD's. Check where is that QVW and add new fields in it
