  3. Chart function

    I have about 30 interview with respondents having a number of different attributes - gender, age, occupation, etc. I am wanting to aggregate the data from particular groups and display the resultant chart. For example what were the main topics discussed by the males or the older groups or specified occupations. Currently I can only show data for one respondent at a time. How does one aggregate the data for a group and create the chart? I am using NVIVO 12
  4. Second file in cases - how to remove

    I have been able to solve this one. This was happening in cases and was because some of my annotations were being picked up in the count also. It was effectively double counting some special quotes that I had put in there and so they had to be removed. I uncoded them from detail view - but had to do this repeatedly for each case folder the individual was in. For example, teacher folder, female folder, etc. Thanks all the same.

  6. I'd like to change a child node to a parent node, taking the references along. Drag and drop doesn't seem to function for me.
  7. Struggling with nVivo cases

    Hi Heather, thanks for responding. There are are two case nodes where there is a duplicate, though that wasn't how I wanted it to be. I will remove the cases on those two and reassign the survey first and then the interviews and see if that combines them. All my 280 cases have lots of coding on them. I'll have a look at that link, thanks.
  8. Struggling with nVivo cases

    Hi Asterinidae, it seems like you may have multiple case nodes for the same cases. Ideally you would want to have 1 case for each of your respondents. You can delete the duplicate cases from your project. These duplicate cases may also by why the matrix coding query you were running was returning no results. If the case nodes you selected when running your query have nothing coded to them no results would be returned from the query. You are able to change the cell content of a matrix coding query to display the number of nodes coded. Please see the following link for how to do this: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/work_with_the_content_of_a_node_matrix.htm#Change_the_information_shown_in_the_matrix_cells Regards, Heather
  9. Memos and Annotations

    Hi Trevorj800, One tool you might find useful when writing your draft is to use “See also” links. These will allow you to link sections of text in your draft directly to quotes from other sources in your NVivo project. Please see the following for how to use see also links: http://help-nv10.qsrinternational.com/desktop/concepts/about_links.htm I’ll also pass your feedback about the word processing options available in NVivo on to the relevant people. Regards, Heather
  10. Hi ksvari, You cannot delete the sentiment nodes from the project, however you are able to uncode anything that has been coded to them. Please see the following link for how to uncode in NVivo: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/remove_coding.htm Regards, Heather
  11. Word Trees

    Hi, Sorry, it is not possible to assign colors/highlight to Word Tree branches. I have raised the matter with our Product Manager who collates all feature requests and prioritises them accordingly. Kind Regards, Bhupesh

  13. Struggling with nVivo cases

    Can anyone help with some issues I'm having around cases? 1) I'm using mixed methods and have interview transcripts (assigned to a case per participant) and a survey (each row automatically assigned a case on uploading and attributes added to the cases from my quant responses). Respondents that have interviewed were manually assigned to the same case as their interview transcripts. The two sources are counted on the case list. But, the attributes that were automatially assigned via the survey data, have not gone over to the interview case.How can I do this? 2) I want to do quite a bit of work on cases in my survey data - e.g. how many cases referred to X node. It gives source as 1 of course and references are counted but that's unreliable if a participant (case) has been coded for a node more than once in different questions. Why can't case be simply added in the node window alongside source and references to be tallied? I'll want to do matrices too that count participants (cases) against atttributes and nodes. I ran a query against cases adn a selection of nodes and every box said 0 and even if it hadn't it would make no sense to then ahve to manually add up the columns. This need to work with cases seems obvious so I must be missing something in the nVivo functionality.
  14. I am using Nvivo as an organization tool for a work of nonfiction, tangentially in the social sciences, but the reason I like Nvivo is that it lets me keep track of hundreds of different sources that I can later quote from and organize in several different ways. I am finding that I would like to write my rough draft while the iron is hot, in Nvivo, and be able to organize my draft along with my sources. I know I can use memos and annotations, but I am finding those features a bit thin in their word processing abilities. Also, I would like to be able to visualize where my memo or annotation sits within the larger picture, which I do not really have a sense of in the current user interface. Has this been under discussion before? How are people working to integrate their draft out of their Nvivo work? Keep in mind that I am a hopelessly disorganized person and the whole point of using Nvivo is because it is idiot-proof for my particular challenges. Suggestions appreciated.
  15. Hi Theresa, When you run a Matrix Coding query, coding from both the user will be displayed. It is not possible to run a query for each user separately. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  16. transfer of pdf from zotero

    Hi Odessa, As long as the files are in the same location on the same computer, then you can import into NVivo. More information is available at the following link: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/mac/v12.0.26-d3ea61/Content/files/reference-management.htm Regards, Nicholas Body
  17. Hi, I was trying out the Auto Coding features for themes and sentiment. The Themes feature allowed me to cancel before saving the results, but the Sentiment Auto Coding did not. I went clicked on "I think" Queries and found a listing for the Sentiment coding and deleted that, but when I click on Nodes and then Sentiment, the Positive and Negative nodes are still there. Selecting them (either individually or all together) and then right clicking does not bring up a "delete" option -- which is available for nodes that I have created. Is there a way to do that? Thank you in advance for the help.
  18. Second file in cases - how to remove

    Hi Welby, So we can investigate this issue further, can you please provide us with a screenshot showing the layout of your project. You can attach the screenshot to a support case and submit via the following link: http://qsrinternational.com/nvivo/contact-us/customer-support I look forward to your reply with more details. Regards, Nicholas Body
  19. Word Trees

    It is usually possible to examine the context of a word usage by clicking on any branch on a word tree. Unfortunately, once the tree is exported, this functionality is lost. Consequently, the context cannot be visualised. Is there a way in which corresponding branches (to the left and right hand side) can automatically be highlighted in different colours before exporting, so that when one pastes the tree in a report, the correponding branch colours (left and right) show the contexts in which the word was used, as shown in the attached picture? In the picture, the branch colours to the left hand side and to the right hand side correspond.
  20. Hi! I have coded several documents in nvivo for Mac. To ensure the reliability of results, a second coder has done the same. Now, I need to run a matrix coding query with cases as rows and nodes as columns in order to be able to export it to SPSS. However, I am not sure whose coding is displayed now when running the query. Is there a way to run queries per user separately? Thank you!
  21. Twitter in NCapture

    Hi, I have this same problem. I received this error message the first time I tried to use ncapture on twitter. What should I do?
  22. transfer of pdf from zotero

    hello, i am trying to transfer files from zotero. do we have to have the actual files attached? what resources are there for this process? thanks, ~Odessa
  23. Hello folks, Using NVIVO for Mac 12 and somehow I have two files in five of my 30 cases. How does one remove the second files from cases (I have five respondents that have two files when viewed in cases)? There is the complete transcript (one file) and then somehow I've managed to add some additional material from Memos into the case. One can view the extra material when viewed in REFERENCE or in SUMMARY view, but I'm unable to delete this extra material. I would show you a screen shot but this system only allows 30kb uploads and a simple screenshot is about 280kb - oh well, I hope you can figure out from my description above. Thanks in advance. Welby
  24. analyzing interviews

    Hi, In order to connect participant's responses/coding to participant's characteristics, you'll need to create one Case each for every participant and assign attributes(such as Gender) via Case Classification. You'll also need to code your Cases to existing nodes/participant's responses. Refer to the links below for more information on organising demographic data and Case Classification: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/concepts/organize_your_demographic_data.htm http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/create_case_classifications.htm Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  25. analyzing interviews

    hi Everyone i need to ask about how can i connect between participants respondents and their characteristics, i mean that if i have many respondents say that they complain from bad education in governmental schools, how can i connect between what they say and their age group for example or gender? thanks
  26. Upgrading Nvivo 11 to 12. do I need to buy another licence or there is some discount for usual users. Thanks 


  27. Hi macdcai, Depending on how you have coded your data you may be able to run a matrix coding query to find the information you are after, though you may need to do some manual work to get your data in the format you require. Please see the following link for how to run a matrix coding query: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/run_a_matrix_coding_query.htm If you are after project specific advice, we do have a paid training and consultancy service who can assist you with approaches to coding and running queries that will best suit the aims of your research. If you’re interested in this service, please feel free to reach out to training@qsrinternational.com for more information. Regards, Heather
  28. Queries, Results not matching

    Hi qualitativedata, We’ll need some more details of the queries you’re running to be able to assist. Can you please submit a support request at the following link and provide some more information on your query criteria. It would be helpful to get a screenshot of your query results too so that we can see what’s going on. https://bit.ly/2ArPaNV Thanks, Heather
