About QVD Files
A QVD (QlikView Data) file is a file containing a table of data exported from QlikView. QVD is a native QlikView format and can only be written to and read by QlikView. (NOT ANY MORE) The file format is optimized for speed when reading data from a QlikView script but it is still very compact. Reading data from a QVD file is typically 10-100 times faster than reading from other data sources.
QVD files can be read in two modes, standard (fast) and super-fast. The selected mode is determined automatically by the QlikView script engine. Super-fast mode can be utilized only when all fields or a subset thereof are read without any transformations (formulas acting upon the fields), though the renaming of fields is allowed.
