Q-Eye is an easy to use QVD files editor that works with both QVD and QVX files It can export data as excel text and sql files

In this release we concentrated on making the life of end users easier.

The most import change is how metadata statistics is presented:

It shows Total rows, Unique Values, Uniqueness, Null Count, Bit width, Size bytes ,XML type, Comments and Tags


Next important change is introduction of Field Metadata dialogue.


The rest of the changes are:

  • Restructured Ribbon toolbar
  • Double click on the header renames field
  • Metadata dialogue's xml and file tabs are only shown to not yet modified documents
  • Generate LOAD Statement button was added to Metadata dialogue.
  • Ability to edit "generated load statement" was introduced
  • Added option to set number of rows
  • Added option to set number of columns
  • Added shortcut to insert row
  • Added shortcut to delete row
  • Added shortcut to insert column
  • Added shortcut to delete column
  • Improved column drag and drop functionality
  • Format button was renamed to fit to content
  • Software automatically adds rows when necessary
  • Lots of small but useful bugs fixes

Most helpful tool! Thanks for the update :-)


Helpfull tool, but I see sometimes a QVD remains locked even after closed (and Qlik rise errors trying to rewrite it), can you check this issue?

Sorry for my english, hope is clear..


Hi Marco

Could not reproduce.

May be it is related to specific QVD...?

Can you provide us with QVD file please?

Hi Mike,

Is there a limit to how large qvd-files you can open with Q-Eye?




There is no hard coded limitation the largest we were able to find was 5.5 gigabytes.

Are you having some problems?


No Mike,

I can see it many times on different QVDs.

Usually I load the whole QVD (not partially) and fit columns... and sometimes I close with "X" (and not with the "close" voice of menu...
