Why we created QVD Editor


Why we created QVD Editor

The Problem

When we work with new customers quite often we can see a lot of QVD files.

Some of them are quite old and no one is able to tell what is inside and why they were created.

Traditional way of dealing with this problem was creating script and loading it in to QlikView.

Which is a lot of work if there are a lot QVD files

We just wanted to able to see the content of QVD file.

The Solution

So we created Q-Eye and instead of writing QlikView script we can just double click on the QVD file to see it content. 

Later we released that it will be really great to be able to edit QVD/QVX files.

And this functionality was introduced in Q-Eye version 2:

Edit both QVD and QVX Files, Save as QVD, QVX, XML, Excel and SQL Insert Scripts

Add/Move/Delete/Rename Fields, Add/Delete Rows, Copy, Cut and Paste

Field Statistics, Rename Table, QlikView Load Script Generation

Rename Table, Multi Document Interface, Operation system integration

Partial Load

Highly optimized code (Only 3.2 mb)

64 bit aware (will use more memory on 64 bit windows)

New version of Q-Eye is available for download

The most important thing we have 64 bit version now.That means that our users can edit very large QVD files, on top of that overal memory usage was decreased,
plus new option was intoruduced - memory compression that decreases memory usage by 50+percent but slows down loading of the files, also better clipboard support, New Icon, Export to XML.
