QVD Creation

In the QVD Creation folder, supporting tasks for QlikView Data (QVD) creation can be viewed and managed.

The QVD creation feature allows QlikView Administrators to deliver specific QVD files to specific QlikView Developers and end-users. With QVD creation, QlikView Administrators can schedule tasks to create QVD files. These tasks do not require an existing QlikView document (.qvw) file. Instead, the QlikView Administrator can insert the load script necessary to generate a QlikView table into the QVD creation task, and the QlikView Publisher (QVP) will execute the load script and automatically store the QVD in a desired location.
