Below script helps in loading all the tables in the database and store that tables in QVDs.
ODBC CONNECT TO MyODBC;
LOAD "TABLE_NAME" as TableNames;
SQL SELECT DISTINCT "TABLE_NAME"
Information schema.columns is for MS SQL Server database, you can replace that with the euqivalent table in the corresponding database.
For oracle ALL_TABLES ALL_TABLES
For MYSQL - all_tables or SHOW_TABLES

Let vTableCount = NoOfRows('SQLTableList');
Let vTableCountQVD = 'dbo.[' & NoOfRows('SQLTableList') & ']';
For i = 0 To $(vTableCount) -1
LET vMyTableName = 'dbo.[' & Peek('TableNames', $(i), 'SQLTableList') & ']';
LET vMyTableNameQVD = Replace(Peek('TableNames', $(i), 'SQLTableList'), ' ', '');
SQL SELECT *FROM $(vMyTableName);
STORE $(vMyTableNameQVD) INTO $(ExtractQVD)$(vMyTableNameQVD).QVD;
DROP Table $(vMyTableNameQVD);
Hope this helps others.
The compatibility of this script is with which Data Base? I've tried with SQL Server 2008 R2 and Oracle 11g but it didn't work.
This works for SQL Server and MySQL. You need to change below statement according to your database to get the table names in database
SELECT DISTINCT "TABLE_NAME"
