  2. I have a dataset comprising transcripts of interviews with various health professionals (doctors, pharmacists, nurses, etc). I used auto coding to create cases for each speaker, so that the Interviewer is one case and each participant is a separate case. These cases are grouped under a (super?)case based on their role. In other words, there is a (super)case that includes all pharmacists, and sub-cases within for each individual pharmacist. I am trying to run queries, specifically word frequency but potentially any, but only on specific cases. In the instructional video for auto-coding, it said that it would be possible to do this so that the questions themselves wouldn't drive the word frequencies. While I couldn't find a video or specific instructions for how to do this, I intuited that I could choose "Selected Items" instead of "All Sources" and then select only the cases I wanted. I successfully used this approach to limit my queries to specific nodes, but when I tried cases, I ran into trouble. When I ran the query it returned no results. After weeks of trying, I eventually discovered that for one of the (super)cases, which included all the doctors, I could successfully run the query and get results. It worked whether I selected the supercase itself or the sub-cases (each individual doctors). For all other cases, however, the program says that it found no results, which makes no sense for a word frequency search! I cannot figure out why it would only work for these particular cases. I checked the settings for the case folders and they are identical. I also confirmed that the cases actually are indexing the text I intended (specifically what each participant said). And I made sure that all cases in each folder were selected each time. After messing around with settings (in the process turning off the classification and thereby losing all my attributes), I still couldn't get the other cases to work. Then, I imported more transcripts today, and then checked to see if the query would work on the new cases. It did not. In fact, now it isn't working for most of the doctors either. I'm comparing the settings for the cases that work with those that don't, and can't find any difference. Any ideas about what might be going on?
  3. NVIVO 11 Classification Results

    Hello Tom, You may generate a report in your NVivo project that includes the coded text from your sources and the nodes that code the text. You can then filter the report to only include the dataset file that contains your survey responses. Please refer to the below NVivo help link for more information: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/create_reports_using_the_report_wizard.htm#Use_the_Report_Wizard You can then export the report outside your NVivo project by referring to: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/manage_reports_and_extracts.htm#MiniTOCBookMark7 I hope this helps. Regards, Rahul

  5. Hi Hvd, I'm afraid the manual coding that you have done in your existing spreadsheet cannot be automatically linked to the new spreadsheet imported into your NVivo project. You may need to recode the information in the new spreadsheet which has a unique identifier column for each respondent. Regards, Rahul

  7. How to import a MaxQDA12 file (.mx12) into NVivo11?

    Hi Rahul. Thanks a lot for your reply. Yes I saw this help page. I am wondering if some users here familiar with both software know if there is a way to convert a MaxQDA file in a format recognized by NVivo. Best, Olivier.
  8. How to import a MaxQDA12 file (.mx12) into NVivo11?

    Hi Oliver, At this stage, the latest version of a MAXQDA project that can be converted to an NVivo project is 11 (.mx5). See the below NVivo help link for more information: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/open_a_maxqda_project.htm This request has been passed to our Products Team for consideration in future versions of NVivo. Regards, Rahul Gupta
  9. I have an open-ended question that I'd like to classify. I'm able to generate nodes that capture the main themes, however, how do I export the survey response and the node that has been assigned. Ideally I would get an Excel spreadsheet with the original response in one column and the node name assigned in the next column. I've been looking all over and can't seem to find a way to do it. Thanks.
  10. Hi. I'm trying to download the corrupt .nvp file but the link won't work. Is there another way? thanks
  11. Hello Dave, A Matrix Coding query can only be performed between 2 project items at a time. I'll pass your request to our Products Team for consideration in future versions of NVivo. If you wish to do a Matrix Coding query between items A,B and C, you may do a Matrix Coding query between A and B and save the results of the query as a node matrix. You can them run another Matrix Coding query between the node matrix from the previous query and item C. Please note that the results obtained may not be similar to running a Matrix Coding query between A, B & C as this workaround will give you the common references between A&B and then check it against C. Please refer to the below NVivo help link for information on saving the results of a Matrix Coding query: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/manage_query_results.htm#MiniTOCBookMark5 I hope this helps. Regards, Rahul Gupta
  12. Hi everyone, Short summary: I have coded my survey questions at nodes. Dataset did not include unique identifier --> Impossible to run matrix coding or add unique cases. Possibility of copying this coded data to another project with the same source material that now includes a unique identifier? I imported a spreadsheet with survey data in to Nvivo. I have finished coding the answers to my survey. However, the imported spreadsheet did not contain a unique identifier variable as every row represented another respondent. Nvivo helpfully added a unique identifier in the dataset structure when I imported this spreadsheet. However, this added unique identifier can't be used to create cases/classifications? This is quite problematic because I would like to visualise the responses as a function of other demographics. I have looked into this but I can't really import a classification sheet because the dataset that I have in Nvivo does not contain a single variable that is unique for each respondent (except the unique identifier Nvivo added but it won't allow me to use this variable...). I have tried a quite a few solutions in hopes that I do not have to simply re-import my spreadsheet with an added unique identifier row and re-code all my questions. 1) Re-import spreadsheet with added unique identifier; the nvivo wizard allows me to create cases and I can then import my coded questions from the other nvivo project. This does not work because the imported coded questions will still only link to their original source, so I cannot run any matrix coding queries on this data. 2) Import a classification sheet and generate your own cases. This does not work because the dataset in the nvivo project does not contain a single variable that is unique for all respondents. 3) Edit the dataset in nvivo and add a unique identifier column myself. It seems like you can add pretty much anything except an imported dataset...? It is impossible for me to change to edit mode for the dataset. Is this possible to do or should I just recode the variables from scratch in a new nvivo project in which I import the spreadsheet including a unique identifier variable? Thanks a lot!
  13. Linking Text in Transcript to Case Nodes

    Hi Shahed, You may auto code your transcript file to automatically code speaker information to the respective case. Please refer to the below NVivo help link for more information: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/concepts/about_automatic_coding_techniques.htm I hope this helps. Regards, Rahul
  14. I would like to know if there is a way to do matrix query with three different types of nodes.

  16. Hello, Does anyone know how to open or import a MaxQDA 12 file into NVivo 11? I am currently working on a project with a researcher who uses MaxQDA 12. She is supposed to share data with me for further analysis. So she sent me her project file which is a .mx12 file. I could not open it with NVivo11, nor import it in any way into my project file. I asked her if she could save her project into an .mx5 file (or earlier version), but apparently this is not possible. She could export it into a .mex file, but I could not open it either. Does anyone know how she can send her data? Is it possible to export it in an .xml file or any other filetype (atlas.ti, else?) from MaxQDA12? Or is there any other way to open a .mx12 file from NVivo 11? Thanks. Olivier
  17. Hello all - thanks in advance for any assistance. I have hours of transcripts, each with multiple speakers. I have created cases for each speaker, I was wondering if there was a way to automatically link speakers in the transcription files to cases that already exist? (and subsequently what those speakers have said?).
  18. I have the same issue! are you sure that the dummy corrupt file is Nv11?? Thanks
  19. Hi Roel, Concept Maps in NVivo do not currently support copying and pasting. I will mention this to the products team for consideration in future versions of NVivo. Warm Regards, Jesse
  20. Text search on annotations not available in NVivo 11?

    Dear Jonathan7176, thanks for sharing your findings. I tried it, and yes, it worked! Anyway, I hope QSR restore that function in the simpler way it used to be. Dear Shahed, if you are using Nvivo 11, you can search for text in annotations by following the steps suggested by Johathan7176 on September 25, 2017: Go to the menu 'QUERY'. Select 'Compound'. A dialogue box will be displayed, where you will see the fields you will need to complete for 'Subquery 1' and 'Subquery 2'. In both subqueries, keep the default option: 'Text Search Query'. Click the button 'Criteria'' -- That will display another dialogue box to specify the text you want to search for in subquery 1. Then, type the relevant text in the blank field. Below that filed, you will see 'Finding matches' (with a blue arrow that you can adjust from 'Exact' to 'Similar'. You don't have to move it unless that is relevant to your particular search. And further below, there is an option that states: 'Search in' with a drop-down menu. By default, you will see 'Text'. Change that to 'Annotations' or to 'Text and Annotations' (as it suits you best for your particular search). Then, click 'OK'. The dialogue box for 'Subquery 1' will close. Repete exactly the same steps and text to be searched in 'Subquery 2'. Run your 'compound' query and NVivo will search for your text in Annotations. For more details about how to run 'compound' queries, please see below the link to the Manual: " Run a Compound query This feature is available in NVivo Pro and Plus editions." http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/run_a_compound_query.htm?rhsearch=compound&rhsyns= Hope that helps.
  21. Hi there, Whilst it is possible to copy and paste shapes and text in and between mind maps, the copy paste functionality unfortunately does not seem to work when working with concept maps. Is this a deliberate choice or something that can be fixed? Thanks. Roel
  22. Hello, can please attach again the Nv11 corrupt for restoring project backup. I have again the same issue. PLZ
  23. Coding highlight remains after uncoding

    I am having the reverse problem! Some sections of coded text do not get highlighted even when there is a coding stripe next to them (I have selected 'coding for all nodes' under 'highlight', and most of my other coded text *is* properly highlighted). I've been using NVivo since about version 7 and never encountered this problem. Thanks.
  24. How to copy file when path is unknown

    Hi dittelinde, The location of the project file is displayed under the project name on the NVivo for Mac home screen. If you are still unable to locate the file, please fill out a support form at: http://www.qsrinternational.com/nvivo/contact-us/customer-support and we will be able to assist you further. Regards, Rahul
  25. Re-coding questions from open to closed

    Hello Shahed, You should be able to reimport the survey and select the correct type for your questions. I believe you are getting an error due to an issue which is currently being investigated by our technical team and we hope to resolve it as soon as possible. For now, as a workaround, you can export your survey from Qualtrics as an Excel file and import the Excel file into NVivo 11. Refer to the below help link for more information: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/import_data_from_spreadsheets_and_text_files.htm I hope this helps. Regards, Rahul
  26. Hi all, I imported surveys from qualtrics and it seems I inadvertently imported closed ended questions as open ended. I am trying to re-import it but it is giving me an error message. Is there a way to re-categorise to close-ended questions? Thanks in advance.
  27. I have been working on a Nvivo file, which a colleague sent me and therefore it was downloaded and originally placed in outlook temporary files. However unfortunately, Nvivo did not shut down properly after I worked on it, and I cannot locate the file anywhere on my Mac or find it through path finder. I can still open the file in Nvivo when I choose "show all files" but it does not show up under "recent files". How do I copy this file and save it properly on my mac? Thank you.
  28. Thanks for this Jonathon - would you be able to break this approach down for me, step by step?
