2.7. Exporting Compilation Results

When you run compilation, the Compiler preserves a database of results in a Quartus Database File (.qdb). The .qdb contains the data to reproduce similar 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.
