    How can we find the QVD Creater file path/source?

    Shubham Kumar

      Hi,

       

      Is there any way to know the QVD file source ( means from where it is got generated ) while seeing the only QVD file.

       

       

      Best Regards,

          I think this isn't possible - at least 'out-of-the-box'.

          But it would be easy to integrate some lines of code to the QVD-Creator-script which fill in the desired 'meta-information' into the QVDs as separate fields ( e.g. source-path, creation-time, creator-script, ...) or as a separate 'Meta-QVD'.

          Greetings,

              Hi Edgar,

               

              Thanks for your reply. But sorry to say that I didn't get your second part of answer. Will that be helping us to know the path of origin of QVD creator.

               

               

              Thanks & Regards,

                  Hi Shubham,

                  for now, if you get your QVD from 'somewhere', it isn't possible to find out about its origin.

                  My proposal is only for the future creation of QVDs in a company.

                  In this scenario you would use QVD-Creators which add your required 'Metadata' automatically to every created QVD (or create an extra 'Meta-QVD' besides the 'normal' QVD).

                  If I had to build such a QVD-Creator, I would include fields for sourcedocument, sourcetype, sourcepath, name of creator-script, date of creation, QVD originally stored to path.

                  This also means, that your QVDs will be a bit bigger as you have your Meta-information per record.

                  Hope this helps.
