Which app created the QVD

I have an app that uses a generated QVD.

I want to find which loader app created this QVD originally.

Is there a way of finding this out?

You may user QViewer (free download). Meta-Data for the file will give you the tip

You may also load the qvd as xml-file (reading the meta-data only). under "Creator Doc" you will find the application, which created the qvd.

Hi,

You can open the qvd file with notepad.

If the standard Notepad chokes on your QVD (too big), then use Notepad++ to open arbitrary large QVDs and navigate to the end.

Or use Qlikview to read the qvd ...

LOAD CreatorDoc FROM [example.qvd] (XmlSimple, Table is [QvdTableHeader]);

EasyQlik's QViewer is really useful. This small utility (the installer zip is only 742KB) is associated with QVD files, allowing you to simply double click them to open them. A full table view of the data is then given, with the ability to get distinct lists of column values (like a Qlik List Box) and menu items for getting to the meta data and lineage information. All data sources that have fed into a QVD’s creation are listed, as is a link directly to the QVW file that created it.


It works for both QlikView and QlikSense generated QVDs


To download, go to EasyQlik QViewer - viewer for QVD files
