  2. Hi, When merging nodes and references, provided that the references in both nodes are exactly the same then they should merge. However if a reference is slightly different, such as an extra space or from a different source with the same text then these duplicates may appear. This can be confirmed by viewing the source and coding stripes and highlight, to show which content is coded to a particular node. Another cause is if there are multiple users coding the same project, the you will also see a duplicate reference from the other user. If neither of these are the case, can you please submit a support request via the below link so that we can investigate further. https://qsrinternational.com/nvivo/contact-us/customer-support Regards, NVivoSup
  3. While working with a large dataset of survey comments I have been using the "Copy" and "Merge into selected Node" functions to shrink the number of nodes after auto-coding the comment data. I thought that merging in the references would bring in all unique references, but I see now that I was also duplicating references already in the node (e.g., I had a node with A, B, and C, and a node with B, C, and D. I thought after merging I would have A, B, C, and, D but I actually have A, B, B, C C, and D). Because I have thousands of comments manually uncoding is a problem. I am looking for an efficient way to remove duplicate references within each node so that I can see what my count of unique references is. Thank you for any input you have!

    Summarize Coding by Attribute Value

    Hi, You can add Attributes as rows and Codes as columns of a Matrix Coding Query to create a matrix. Later, the result of the matrix can be exported to Word/Excel. Refer to the link below for information on Matrix query: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/run_a_matrix_coding_query.htm I hope this helps. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  5. Hi Lily, Can you please submit this query via the following link here : https://qsrinternational.com/nvivo/contact-us so that our team can assist you further. Regards QSR Support
  6. Hi, It may be possible to create report via Report Wizard to achieve something similar. Refer to link below for detailed information on using Reports Wizard: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.55-d3ea61/Content/projects-teamwork/create-reports.htm I hope this helps. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  7. Hi Senta, Source Classification can be used to achieve something closer to what you are after. Refer to the link below for detailed information on Source Classification: http://help-nv10.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/create_source_classifications.htm Once the papers have been classified, you may be able to use Search Folders option to find the information you are looking for: http://help-nv10.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/create_and_customize_search_folders.htm Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  8. My NVivo 11 Pro license is about the expire and I can't seem to find where to renew my license. The only option that I see is to buy the NVivo 12 Pro license. Can I buy the NVivo 11 Pro version rather than the NVivo 12 Pro one? In case I purchase the NVivo 12 Pro license, will I be able to open my NVivo 11 Pro projects on it?

    Extracting codes and text

    That's great, and a much needed feature, I imagine. Unfortunately, my goal is to push the state-of-the-art of natural language processing, not to use an existing feature. Is there any way to extract my added text with their codes? per the original question? Kai 🙂
  10. Hi, I appear to be having the same (or a very similar) problem too - I do use NVivo 12 too with macOS Mojave - , could you share the advice with me? I'd like some help. Thanks, V

    Extracting codes and text

    Hi, This can be done using the 'autocode by existing coding patterns' feature, available in NVivo Plus edition. For more information on this feature and the steps to use it, please see the following link: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/automatic_coding_using_existing_coding_patterns.htm Hope this helps.

  13. Hi, You can do this automatically by importing an Excel file which has Id number as the first column and attributes, codeable data in the rest of the columns. Refer to 'Import a spreadsheet or text file' section in the link below for more information: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.55-d3ea61/Content/files/datasets.htm I hope this helps. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  14. In a current research project I am using Survey Monkey™ to collect responses. Some questions use multiple columns to record data as in the attached example. What is the best way to organise this data so that I can import each data element into NVivo? Example for NVivo.pdf
  15. Hi! Is there a way to extract the text and the codes I placed on them so that I can train a machine learning algorithm to do the rest of my coding for me? For example, I have the following text: "Using the system increases my productivity." I coded "system" with the 'technology' node, "using" as an action, and "job" as a task. Now I just need to export the original texts and have some way to track the codes I assigned to words.
  16. Hello, I use Nvivo 12 Pro I am trying to link each case from my classification sheet (uploaded in Excel) to the each short-answer in my data set. Both the case and the answer are well identified with an Id number. The way i've done this in the past is right clicking on each answer and code it to the respective case. It has worked in the past, when I had a limited number of cases/responses. For my current project, I have 2400 cases/responses. Doing this manually will take me an scandalous amount of time, not to mention the potential human error of erroneous coding. Does Nvivo have a way to speed up this process? A way to do this automatically? I will appreciate the help
  17. Hi, I am new to NVivo, though I have quite a bit of experience in text analysis and in databases. I'm using NVivo 12 plus My data is a series of text files. Each file has resposnes to several open ended questions, and each file is defined as a case. Within all the responses in all the files, I have identified and coded 38 themes. For cases that meet a simple criteria, I simply need to report out a list of references for each coded theme. For my query, I specify which cases to include (ie, all cases at a certain site) all themes (ie, all 38 theme nodes I have set up under a single parent node) The query results are the list of referenes I want to report on. But the listing first shows the case, then it lists all that case’s content references that are coded to any of the 38 themes, and it lists this content in the order it appears in the case file. Instead, I want the results to be listed by theme. So display the theme name, and then list all the references coded to that theme, looping through the cases. Then display the next theme name, and list all the references for that theme, again looping through cases. I could do a separate query for each theme name, but there must be a faster way!
  18. Hi, I am very new to Nvivo and really appreciate the possibilities. I am using it for my literature review. A lot of papers have references at the end and I am wondering if there is an option to find common references? For example: Paper 1 lists three references: 1) Paper A from Author A in Journal J, 2) Paper B from Author B in Journal H, 3) Paper C from Author A in Journal H Paper 2 lists two references: 1) Paper A from Author A in Journal J, 2) Paper D from Author C in Journal H Paper A seems to be very important in this area, hence I would like to read this paper. Is there any way to find out the most cited papers in my literature list? Or see the most cited authors, or journals? Thank you very much in advance, Senta
  19. Hi There, I love the way that I can export my code list, and the list hierarchies are maintained in excel. I would like to do this but FILTERED for a specific attribute. Another option would be to create a report or an extract that summarizes the coding references across the codebook for a specific attribute value . It would look something like this, ideally in an excel output: Attribute Value A (Community 1) Code 1 - total references Code 1.1 - count of references Code 1.2 - count of references Code 1.3 - count of references Code 2 - total references Code 2.1 - count of references ...And so on. I have a large code book and I need the hierarchies, otherwise they all just smush together in the queries that I've run. Many thanks

    Report on matrix node with cases

    Hi Charlie, I'd like that feature too. Matrices are so useful to see your text side by side for qual analysis. I find only limited use from the node counts in matrices. Someone has raised this on canny already here: https://nvivo.canny.io/features/p/export-data and here: https://nvivo.canny.io/features/p/export-content-of-nodes-to-excel Feel free to upvote it = )
  22. As someone who works with a large team of analysts, one of the most frustrating aspects of using NVIVO is that the software still has a lot of bugs that cause duplicate files to be created when you merge two projects, even if the files appear identical. One thing that would save us a lot of time, since this error is so common, would be to have a publicly-available troubleshooting tutorial that goes through the most common fixes for this problem. For example, workarounds we've found (after hours of trial and error) include: Use diffchecker.com to check for differences in text Use Microsoft Word's compare feature to check for differences in formatting (Office 365). Remove the formatting from the file in both projects by selecting all text in the file and formatting as normal Create a new blank project for each project and import the project into this new file. Then import one of the new projects into the other I understand that trying to identify differences in complex text documents--especially with coding, classification sheets, etc. on top of everything--is a highly complex task, and that NVIVO will probably never be bug-free when it comes to project imports. But most of the solutions we've found that worked took a long time to discover and were fairly simple to implement once we did. In general, if there were more troubleshooting tutorials available in NVIVO's online help, this would save users a huge amount of time and probably reduce the number of support requests QSR handles per user.
  23. This is very helpful. Thank you. Just to make sure I understand correctly: I need to create a new node called, say "responses" and code each and every response to this code, right? Then, when I run the matrix coding, the node "responses" will generate each of the rows. Correct?

    Error on Facebook data capture

    Is there any update on this? It has been about 3 months -- is there any timeline on it working again?
  25. Thank you so much - it worked!
  26. Hi Prue, Can you please check if you are running the latest version of NVivo 12 by opening NVivo and clicking File > Help > Check for Software Updates. If an update is available, please install it then try to edit one of these project items again. If the issue still occurs, can you please log a support request form via this link: https://qsrinternational.com/nvivo/contact-us/customer-support Regards, NVivo Support
  27. Hello Sarchie, The easiest way of getting the results you want is to run a matrix coding query. You may put all your response codes (Q1,Q2, etc.) on rows, and then add contextual codes ( physical violence, emotional violence, etc.) on columns. On your results, each cell represents the overlapping of response and contextual codings as frequencies. Although it is not a list, it will let you do what you described. You can also limit this query down to the desired group of items; for example only look for overlapping of codings in interviews that held in a certain city. Hope this helps.
