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. The 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.


We did a lot of testing but there is a chance that we missed something, so if you find any problems please post your comments on our support forum and we will do our best to help you.

Date/Time format strings control the conversion of strings into date time type.

Date Time Format Strings are composed from specifies that describe values to be converted into the date time value.

In the following table, specifies are given in lower case. Case is ignored in formats, except for the "am/pm" and "a/p" specifies.
