3.7. Exporting Compilation Results

The Intel® Quartus® Prime Compiler writes the results to a set of database files. You can run a command to export the compilation results database as a single Quartus Database File (.qdb).

After running design compilation, the exported .qdb file contains the data to reproduce similar compilation results in another project, or in a later software version. You can export your project's compilation results database for import to another project or migration to a later Intel® Quartus® Prime software version.

You can export the .qdb for your entire project or for a design partition that you define in your project. When migrating the database for an entire project, you can export the compilation database in a version-compatible format to ensure compatibility for import to a later software version. Although you cannot directly read the contents of the .qdb file after export, you can view attributes of the database file in the Quartus Database File Viewer.
