    What is coded

    I'm also struggling with this issue. I import survey responses which can create hundreds of cases. Is there a way to create a query to identify which cases have not been coded?
  3. NVivo 12: I have 280 cases (survey respondents) organised under three cases (case studies). I imported survey results from Excel and created the cases and automatically assigned attributes using the wizard some time ago. I've since found that NVivo can't handle my continuous data for some attributes and have created a new excel spreadsheet which has those data binned into groups that I can use more easily in my analyses. The spreadsheet has a column of the same identifying numbers as was used on the first sheet and the existing cases. I want to import the sheet and automatically assign the new set of attributes but to the classification (person) and cases. If I use the wizard it wants to set all 280 up as new cases and I would have to manually assign each row of data to the existing cases and then delete the new ones. Is there a way to do this automatically through the import process or after rather than manually?

  5. Hi AKshay. That doesn't really help. The problem is that the data have all been coded, so if I exclude the records and re-import the spreadsheet, I'll lose the coding. My current strategy is to attach a classification sheet that says whether or not the case needs to be excluded. Then, once I've linked the classification sheet to the dataset, I can sort on the exclusion criterion, and exclude the relevant records from the analysis. However, the problem I now have is that I don't know how to link the cases in the classification sheet to the cases in the dataset. Is there some way to do it automatically, or do I have to do it manually? Both the dataset and the classification sheet have the same set of email addresses in the first column. More generally, if I have 12 datasets (which I do), all with records from the same cases (and all indexed by the same email addresses), is there some way to tell N-Vivo that each record with the same email address is part of the same case? (Sorry to be so tardy in responding. I had an outdated email in the system and so didn't get a notification when you replied.) Thanks, Peter.
  6. Dear all, Sorry to ask a question that has been asked many times. One of the issue I have with nvivo is choosing how to structures the source files. Having one file per case has advantages and disadvantages. My experience is that nvivo has trouble when working with many separate sources. Merging the cases in the same file earns in processing speed (nvivo but also human processing). But I cannot access to some functions when all cases are merged in one source file. Nvivo is more powerfull with each case in a separate source document. I would have liked to have your point of view, the pros and the cons of having cases aggregate in one source or each one in separate sources. This project consist open ended questions of a survey. So I have about 3000 individuals. But we can discuss this issue more generally: at which point it is a good practice to separate the sources?

    Italian as content

    I'm interested to work with french, german and italian texts. Do you plan to implement italian as text content language? (or a way to implement custom lemmatization dictionnaries)

    Thanks, that was helpful
  10. Hi Peter, Thank you for contacting NVivo Support. Unfortunately, there is no way to exclude specific excel rows/columns after you have imported the dataset in your project. You will need to edit the excel file outside of NVivo and then import the excel file in your project. I hope this helps. Regards, AKshay
  11. I have a dataset that I imported using excel. It contains 160 records of about 1000 words each. I have hand-coded it. There are a number of records I want to exclude from the final analysis. I want to analyse it a number of ways, including simply producing a hierarchy chart of all the data in one field. I would like to keep the excluded data if possible. Is there some way of doing this, other than uncoding the records I want to exclude? Is there a way to: - Copy the records I don't want to include out of the dataset into a new dataset? - Add a classifier variable, filter by the classifier, and then do the analysis? - If either of these requires me to export the data, can I do so in a way that retains the coding? - Other ideas? Thanks.
  12. I have also had a similar issue. I added new transcripts and then recoded based on an updated framework. I created a new matrix where many of the cells were missing. When I used auto-summarise it picked up some of the new coding but duplicated everything else. I am worried its not picking up everything that I recoded... Based on your previous advice should I manually delete everything from my matrix and use auto-summarise as to go back and work out what has been recoded would take a lengthy amount of time? I also wanted to keep my original matrix and create another one for my summaries - I tested this in one cell and it looks like the old and new matrix are the same. Can I actually do that or am I better to export to excel and create a summary matrix there? I have also tried copying the project and renaming it and it looks like the new summary rather than the original has carried forward? Thanks, Claire
  13. Hi, I have a similar problem to previous users. I started a document to capture my journal experiences since early August and opening it this morning it has disappeared.I have a .nvp file in my recovery folder i would like to open to see if i can restore to that version. Could you tell me how to do that please? thanks,
  14. Hi, If all 5 interviews are in a single document, you can create 5 nodes based on interviews and code respective interview text to those nodes. Then you run a Matrix Coding query between interview nodes and your theme nodes. The resulting matrix will show the number of common coding references across interviews and themes. The other solution which you've already tried is to have these interviews in separate documents. You can then run a Matrix Coding query between interview documents and nodes. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  15. Hi, There are 2 scenarios when duplicate entries can occur in a framework matrix: 1. If you have previously created a framework matrix in your project, the summaries are not deleted from the project even when you delete the framework matrix. If you then create another framework matrix which contains the same intersection (I.e same combination of themes and cases) this summary will be automatically added to your framework matrix. 2. When the auto summarise function is run, it adds a new copy of the summaries, rather than updating the existing summary. So if the auto summarise feature is used more than once, the summaries will get duplicated. A workaround for now would be to manually erase these summaries from your matrix (backspace or select all the text and delete). In regards to the issue about matrix not picking the data, the framework matrix cells have a character limit of 8000. This can result in missing data in cells where character limit is exceeded, when you use Auto-Summarize feature. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  16. I'm facing some bugs in regards to framework matrices in Nvivo 12. Multiple cells have duplicate text, sometimes repeating the text 3 or 4 times. (I reported this bug here https://nvivo.canny.io/bugs/p/auto-summary-in-framework-matrix-creates-duplicate-text in February.). A more recent observed issue - it also seems that the framework matrix also doesn't pick up all the data. For example, I had multiple entries coded under "Person A" and "Observation A". None of these showed up in the framework matrix though they do show up in other queries. In fact the whole column "Observation A" is empty. This bug was new to me and I had been building my findings off results from framework matrix though I'm not sure I trust it. Any suggestions?
  17. It's a bug in Nvivo (still present in Nvivo 12). It also does it to me too and I'm not pressing auto summarize more than once. https://nvivo.canny.io/bugs/p/framework-matrix-creates-duplicate-text Please upvote it if you are experiencing the issue. Considering this was 2016 when reported I'm not holding my breath this will be fixed.
  18. Hi! I was hoping someone could detail the steps to run a query that allows you to see the number of references by node, by file. For context, say I have 5 coded interviews and I would like to break down the total number of references for each node to see how many times particular nodes have been referenced in one particular interview. Every time I try to run a query I end up with an error. So I ended up making 5 copies of the file so that I had one interview per file and then looking at the node structure. Which works, but I'm assuming there is an easier way. Surprisingly I can't find much online (though maybe I'm googling the wrong terms) except for links to generic "How to run a query" articles which don't give any hints as to what parameters to select to achieve this outcome. Thanks!
  19. Thank you very much. It worked!

    nVivo running very slow during initial coding of nodes

    I have started having this issue has anyone resolved?
  21. Hi mhraymond, you can find references that were coded after a certain date by running a custom report. You can find information on how to run a custom report at the following link: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/projects-teamwork/create-reports.htm#CreateareportusingtheWizard To find all the references coded to a node after a certain date select the following criteria for each step of the report wizard: Step 1: Select to create a report from the 'Code' view. Step 2: Include the following fields: • Code.Name • Coded File.Coding Reference.Coded Text • Coded File.Coding Reference. Modified On Step 3: Add the following filters: • 'Code.Name' 'In' • 'Coded File.Coding Reference.Modified On' 'On or after' Step 4: Group by Code.Name For steps 5-7 you can click next to accept the defaults. On step 8 you will need to set a name for your report and then click 'Finish'. When running your report tick the check boxes next to both of your filters, and use the Select buttons to choose the codes and date ranges you are interested in. The output should show the code name, the coded text and the date it was coded. Regards, Heather
  22. Hello, I am trying to run a query to find all material that was coded at a specific node after a certain date. I have found the filter for the date (Date modified, or Date created) in the query window, but when I apply the filter, then all my nodes are greyed (turned off) and I can't seem to select the node I want... Thanks for your help!
  23. All done! Thank you so much for your help! Kind regards, Gail.
  24. Hi Gail, I have attached a corrupt dummy project with this email to help you recover the project from the .nvb file. Please follow the steps below to recover your data from NVB file: 1. Download and unzip attached file(based on your NVivo version) to your computer. 2. Open NVivo, click on Open Other Project, then browse and select the dummy file saved in step 1. 3. You will be presented with an option to recover from a project recovery file. Select your .nvb file from the list to recover the project. If your project does not appear in the list, you can try searching your computer for any .nvb files, these are project recovery files. 4. The project should open once recovery is complete. I hope this helps. Kind Regards, Bhupesh NV12CorruptProject (for restoring project backups).nvp.zip NV11CorruptProject(for restoring project backups).nvp.zip
  25. As with some other form users, I've been unable to open a project, but have a .nvb file. (When I opened the project, there was an error message, but it disappeared before I could read it). Is it possible to let me know how to recreate the project from the .nvb file? I'm not sure why the project didn't open, but I've noted the advice on how to mitigate against this happening. Many thanks, Gail.
  26. Hi Audrey, We've sent you an email with some more information on this. Regards, ^NVivoSup
  27. Hi ellisjen, If you are merging two projects, each with coding on a document, that source document will duplicate if both copies do not have the same name, folder location and content. In this case you would need to undo the edits or add these to the unedited version so that both match before merging the projects. The below page has some information on how NVivo determines duplicates and how they are handled when a project is merged: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/projects-teamwork/import-items-from-another-nvivo-project.htm ^NVivoSup
