  2. Thank you. Yes that is where they are - in a cases folder.
  3. Hello, I am using NVivo 11 Plus for Word. I am having a dilemma. I have one large Excel spreadsheet with 600+ respondents (includes demographics, survey responses, and text box responses). I tried working with this information as one document (coding, attempting to create matrices, etc) within the 1 spreadsheet. However, I have noticed severe limitations - I cannot break the groups apart easily, I cannot analyze groups within groups, and a host of other issues. My question - What is best, take each individual out of the 1 spreadsheet, and upload them into NVivo as INDIVIDUAL people (in essence, have 600+ INDIVIDUAL excel spreadsheets) OR, should I group individuals together in sets I intend to analyze together, i.e. former faculty - female; former faculty - male; current faculty - female; current faculty - male. Thanks for your responses!
  4. Hi Betty, At this stage, I am sorry to inform you, it is not possible to sort/arrange attributes in a Classification in NVivo for Mac. I have raised the matter with our Product Manager who collates all feature requests and prioritises them accordingly. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  5. Matrix query problems

    Hi, This doesn't seem to be related to size of your dataset or your system hardware. This issue is generally related to corrupt NVivo settings or a corrupt project. To resolve the error, ensure you have updated your software to the latest Service Pack. To determine if you need to update your software, follow the steps below: Launch NVivo 11, go to ‘File’ > ‘Help’ > ‘Check for Software Updates’ and if prompted, click on the notification to go to the download page and download the update. Please note: You need to download the update patch that corresponds to the version (32 bit or 64 bit) of NVivo 11 installed on your system. To determine the NVivo version installed, launch NVivo, go to ‘File’ > ‘Help’ > ‘About NVivo’. Under ‘NVIVO VERSION’, if you see ‘11.x.xxx.x (64-bit)’ you have the 64 bit version installed, otherwise you have the 32 bit version. Secondly, if a service pack update is not needed or has not resolved the issue, follow the steps below: Enable Plain Text To change this setting: 1) Launch NVivo 2) Go to the File menu -> Options 3) Tick the option ‘Display plain text for nodes with' 4) Click Apply 5) Click OK 6) Close down NVivo 7) Re-launch NVivo If the problem persists, rename your NVivo 11 customization folder as per the steps below. Note, taking this action will reset any customization you have set up and your 'My Recent Projects' list on the Welcome screen will be refreshed. If you use NVivo 9 & 10 on the same PC these steps will also reset any customization you have setup in that program. Next time you open NVivo 11, navigate to where your project is located and double-click on the project icon to open it. This action will place the project name back in the 'My Recent Projects' list. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Windows 8: 1. With NVivo 11 closed, follow the steps below: i. From the Start screen, start typing Explorer and click on File Explorer icon in search results displayed ii. A new file explorer window should open up. Click on the View tab and check the Hidden Items option 2. Navigate to the following folders: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\QSR_International C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\QSR_International (If exists) 3. Within these folders, rename all folders where the name starts with NVivo.exe_Url (e.g rename to old NVivo.exe_Url). ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please let me know if the issue persists. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  6. Last week
  7. Hi, I am a new to NVivo and have found my way around a little, but I am facing a problem which has had me stressed the the last 4 days. I run a matrix query with the nodes (strategies) that I am looking at as columns, and the Node Target Words words I am testing as rows, I also choose the source as the interview which I have done. The problem is that when I export the results to excel, one of the nodes (strategies), [Evaluating] which I have coded (65) becomes 61 times when I add all teh strategies used with the words. By looking closely at the codes node in Nvivo I found the following, which I really don't understand § 11 references coded [15.20% Coverage], for participant 1, so does this mean there are 11 instances where te node [Evaluating] has been applied? but when looked the list of references , they are not 11 but 9 and some had References 7-8 - 2.95% Coverage and References 9-10 - 2.08% Coverage, so does that mean that in each of these references the node [Evaluating] appeared twice? When I went back to the node [Evaluating] I found 4 instances like the previous so 61 + 4= 65 but in excel it only gives me 61. I really do not understand how NVivo is giving me node less than the total number knowing I have not coded anything else than the words am looking at. Can someone kindly help me ? Thank you, Nesreen
  8. I made a text search on my sources - dozens of papers - and i want to sort the result based on date attribute of source classification. I tried to create a set from result but still impossible sorting the listing. Sorry if this is easy, i searched here and did not find any solution. The sources imported from endnote, mendeley, etc. have a lot of metadata very useful to develop bibliometric analysis and i wish do it in Nvivo. Thanks.
  9. Issuing uploading data sets

    Hi Sarah-Jane, To investigate the issue, could you provide us the information requested by my colleague via Facebook? Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  10. updating NVivo

    Hi, NVivo 10 for Mac does not support Mac OS High Sierra and its associated file system (apfs). To resolve the issue, please upgrade to NVivo for Mac (version 11). Please refer to the email sent by my colleague for detailed instructions. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  11. Thanks Heather for your quick reply (it worked). In NVivo10, the cells in a framework matrix remain initially empty. I'm aware that it is possible to auto populate the matrix in Nvivo11, is that also possible to do that in NVivo10? Or do I need to populate the cells by copy-pasting content? Thanks for your help, Inga
  12. Hi, not a technical question, more a good practice question that has been bugging me. Not sure if this forum is the right place? (If not, a pointer in the right direction would be much appreciated). 1. When you upload your interview do you include the interviewer's questions? 2. When you make excerpts do you include the interviewer's quotes sometimes? (This assumes the answer to 1. is yes!) 3. If you do 1 and 2, presumably it affects analysis (e.g. word counts, length of coding passages). Is this seen as acceptable practice for a thesis? Thanks!

  14. I am not sure how interpret the cluster analysis of a word frequency query, specifically the relationships depicted in a horizontal dendrogram. The help file says: The Cluster Analysis tab displays up to 100 words as a horizontal dendrogram, where words that co-occur are clustered together. I am not sure what "co-occur" means.
  15. Hi All, I am experience quantitative researcher; however, I am using Nvivo for the first time and i have run into some difficulties. I am working with a survey of 715 cases by 42 variables (most various demographics) (approximately 7mb in excel) of varying type and my main purpose of using Nvivo was to code two open response questions into nodes and then determine which cases had the presence of various nodes (approximately 28 nodes). In addition, the ability to search and cross reference quotes was a reason for using NVIVO. Midway through my research, i decide to test to ensure the coding was working by making a matrix to show case allocation. This matrix would consist of the rows being cases and the columns being nodes (about 28), with the cell contents able to be the number of references of each case. I have discovered; however, that when doing a preliminary matrix query to determine which cases were coded to a node i was confronted with the follow error message. Which to my eye looks like a fairly generic error message expressing a non specific failure. Another attempt later to extract the same matrix, I received a matrix of 0 for every cell, To identify the problem I have done the following 1. Made a small dataset of fake data and coded it in an a similar way. Result: the matrix query works and the number of reference per cases comes up easily 2. Reimported the original data and recoded the first observation early to see if this was some sort of corruption. Result: Same as original problem 3. Reimported the original data and force all my nodes to be on the same hierarchical level (no children, just parents) Result: Same as original problem 4. Extracted only the first observation from the dataset, (now size at roughly 8kb) and coded the same manner as the original Result: matrix query works perfectly. Would I be correct in deducing from this that the fundamental problem is the size of my dataset and/or my system hardware. I am running Windows 8.1 with 4gb of Ram. My ram allocation does not exceed 80% but i fear that is due to the OS not allocating more RAM. Let me know if you want any further details.
  16. Hi! I´m sorry for such a rookie question. I am just starting ona project. I am creating a list of cases and a lost of attributes for each. I would like to arrange the order of these attributes. How do I manage this? I.e., I wanty attribute "Name subtitle" to appear just after attribute "Name". Thanks and best regards! See picture attached:
  17. updating NVivo

    I just installed High Sierra for Mac version 10.13 and now I have an error message saying that the disk has an unsupported format. I updated NVivo 10.2.2 software from 10.2.1 and still the same issue. Does anyone have any advice on what to do next? I have another computer with the old OS and it does still work.
  18. Issuing uploading data sets

    I'm trying to import a data set (survey open responses in an excel file) which I have previously done no problem but with this new set it gives me an error message. Then I get the second error message. Except that it won't let me do that either. I've tried doing the codeable field - won't let me upload, I've tried editing the characters in the columns of concern in the original to under 255 but it still won't work. I didn't have this problem before and it's similar sorts of data, same column headers. Any thoughts?

  20. Hi Heather, This is good to know! Yes, I would love to see such a feature. Thank you for your response and passing on my request.
  21. Coding summaries for multiple users

    Hello kpconte, You may run a Matrix Coding query by selecting all the sources in your project as the rows and the users as the columns. Please refer to the below NVivo help link for more information on Matrix Coding query: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/run_a_matrix_coding_query.htm You can change the information displayed in the cells of the Matrix Coding query results as per the instructions in the following help link: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/work_with_the_content_of_a_node_matrix.htm#Change_the_information_shown_in_the_matrix_cells I hope this helps. Regards, Rahul
  22. Hello DGB, Generally, there shouldn’t be any loss of nodes when opening a NVivo 10 project in NVivo 11. Could you expand all the folders under Nodes by clicking on the arrow in front of Nodes folder and see if you are able to locate your nodes? Please also note that all Classified nodes are converted to case nodes, and stored in the Cases folder. Refer to the link below for details: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/open_a_project_created_in_an_earlier_version.htm If the issue persists, please submit a support form at: http://qsrinternational.com/nvivo/contact-us/customer-support & we’ll be able to assist you further. I hope this helps. Regards, Rahul
  23. HI, I have had to move from NVivo 10 to 11 and in upgrading my working file have found I have lost coding nodes. When it first happened, I managed to get Nvivo 10 back again and opened the file and the nodes were back. Unfortunately I now can not use 10, and so have once again lost access to some of my nodes. Do you have any idea what is going on? Thanks
  24. This seems to be a simple query that I've spent days trying to figure out. I am working with a team of 5 users. We are each responsible for coding some portion of the >100 sources in the project. To manage this, we have split up the coding so each source is assigned to at least 2 coders. We are also using autocoding which is further complicating the problem. I need a table or report that enables me to list all of the sources, and then review which have been manually coded by which user and for non-autocoded nodes. Basically, I need to ensure that no sources have been skipped. I know I can apply coding stripes for users, and look at the references/sources on the list view - but this is way too time consuming and doesn't give me the breakdown by user that I need. The coding comparison is way to detailed and doesn't suit my purposes. I've tried using both extracts and queries. At the minimum, I just need to know: 1) how many and which users have coded in each source (I've figured this one out via an extract) 2) how much of the source each person has coded - at this point, I'd be happy with any indication: number of references coded by user, percent of source coded by user (coverage?), etc Because we have such a large project, the ideal would be that I could use a filter to specify for the output 1) specific folders of sources and 2) specific folders of nodes. The purpose of this would be to look at the manual coding and exclude the nodes that were populated by autocoding. This seems so simple, so why am I flummoxed!
  25. Hi drenched, You can’t currently edit datasets in NVivo, or export a dataset in the format you’re after. If you would like to manually add these fields to your dataset using Excel, an easy way to show the data you’re after would be to print your dataset with coding stripes turned on. You could print to a PDF file if you prefer. Please see the following links for how to turn on coding stripes and how to print in NVivo. Coding stripes: http://help-nv10.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/use_coding_stripes_to_explore_coding.htm Print: http://help-nv10.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/print_project_items.htm I have also passed a feature request on to the relevant team to consider adding this feature in future. Regards, Heather
  26. I'm using NVivo to code open-response fields of a larger survey with many close-ended questions. My NVivo file only has 1 source imported: 1 Excel file with lots of survey respondents as rows and many columns of quant data in addition to a couple columns containing the open-response question qual text. We inductively coded the qual text to quantify topics that came up. Now my ideal would be to append columns to my original survey data set; 1 column per node, with values of 1 assigned in the column if the participant had text coded to that node and values of 0 assigned if their passage was not assigned to that node. Would it be possible to do this, and then export the data set back out to Excel? My hope is that once the raw survey data + node data is exported, I can put it into stats software to do things like run regressions and check the balance of whether the demographics of people who answered "none" or "n/a" to the open-response question varied from those who gave a true answer etc. Sorry if this was asked already - I didn't see it. Thanks in advance!
  27. Hi Inga, You can create case nodes once all your other coding in NVivo is complete. Case nodes in NVivo 9 and 10 appear the same as any other node in NVivo does, so it’s likely that you are doing the right thing. If you would like your case nodes to appear in a separate folder in your node list you will need to manually organise your case nodes. You can find some details on how to organise your nodes at the following link: http://help-nv10.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/reorder_and_refine_nodes.htm#MiniTOCBookMark4 If you need a refresher on how to create case nodes from sources, you can find details on how to do this at the following link: http://help-nv10.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/create_nodes_automatically.htm#MiniTOCBookMark6 Regards, Heather
  28. Hi Julia, I can see that you’ve also submitted a support request through our website and we’ve been in contact to assist. An easy way to get an indication of who has said what would be to create cases for each of your participants and code all their responses to the relevant case nodes. You can then view your theme nodes with coding stripes turned on for each participant to see who has said what. You can find information on creating case nodes at the following link: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/concepts/about_cases.htm You can find details on how to turn on coding stripes at the following link: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/use_coding_stripes_to_explore_coding.htm Regards, Heather
