  2. Hi Di Feng, The Group Query doesn't calculate the common coding references, it finds out the common items. Whereas the compound query can be used to find common coding references using AND criteria. This is the reason results are different. For example, if you code the first paragraph from a source to Node A and second paragraph from the same source to Node B, the Group Query will show 1 reference each. On the other hand, Compound Query will result 0 references because there isn't any common text which has been coded to both nodes. Kind Regards, Bhupesh

  4. Hi BMY, Please refer to "Merge or Copy Classifications" section in the link below for instructions on merging classifications in NVivo: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.90-d3ea61/Content/classifications/manage-classifications.htm Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  5. Hi Di Feng, Thanks for the suggestion. Could you please elaborate on what you mean by 'survey folder'? The four classification sheets are already in NVvio, how do you suggest I place them into a 'survey folder'? thanks, BMY
  6. you can import all the 4 classification sheets into survey folder, and create set or group the attribute values.
  7. In the Nvivo sample project, I was running a group query to look for which interviews have been coded at economy nodes intersecting balance nodes, and how many references are intersecting them ? but if I was using a compound query to look for the same questions ( how many references are intersecting them) the query results were different from group query results, which means compound query results were included in group query results, if I only look at one interviewee, group query results have more references than compound query. why ?
  8. I am working with four classification sheets in NVivo. Each classification sheet pertains to a different category of participants, e.g., Key Informants, Interviewees etc. In hindsight, I do not think this was the best way to group participants into cases and classifications. For example, I am trying to get a sense of the demographic spread of ALL respondents, but because I have participants grouped into the four classification sheets, I am not able to get a complete picture when charting cases by attribute values. I am able only to chart attribute values for cases within a single classification sheet and not across multiple classification sheets. I would like to avoid reassigning cases to a new classification and reclassifying the attribute values for each item. Thus, I would like to know the least labour intensive way to merge the four classification sheets? If there is no efficient workaround, are there ways to use other tools in NVivo (e.g., search folders or sets) to ascertain the demographic spread of ALL respondents and produce visualizations by using my current structure? Thanks so much for your help!

  10. I was doing a sample project homework about Nvivo. The questions as below: 1.Run and save a Group Query to generate a list of all the nodes that are also coded at “Economy” a. The Balance node intersects with Economy in this list. From the list, how can you find out what Interviews have intersecting content? i. Which interviews are they and how many references are intersecting them? My answer is described as below : In the column of “Finds” at the summary tab, you can find the numbers for the results. Or go to the "Connection Map" Each line represents an association found between a scope item and a range item. Totally 6 interviews were found. Select all the 6 balance nodes intersecting with "tourism", "jobs and costing living", "Due to foreign competition", "Due to environment impacts of fishing", "Fishing or aquaculture", "Economy" Then right-click one of these 6 nodes, select "cases coded at these nodes" under Query command of pop up menu. The interviewees are William, Thomas,Ken,Helen,Betty,Barbara. Select all the 6 cases and right click,choose "hierarchy chart of files, coded at these cases" under "visualize" of pop up menu. At last, the results will be shown at the summary tab, displaying the number of coding references with Barbara 16, Thomas 8, William 8, Hellen 7, Betty 1, Ken 6. 2. You suspect that there were other Interviewees who also talked about Economy and Balance, but perhaps not at exactly the same location in the transcript, so you decide to run and save a Compound Query (and you also save the Results!) to look at Economy and Balance, as long as they are coded anywhere in the same Interview. a. Which Interviews have these two nodes applied somewhere in the transcript and how many references are intersecting them My answer is described as below : I run a Compound Query, I added "economy" nodes to coding query(all these codes and cases) in the subquery 1, then I added the "balance" node to coding query(all these codes and cases) in the subquery 2. After that, I use "OR" to define both nodes' relationships. From the" In "list, select the items on all 6 cases(Barbara, Thomas, William, Hellen, Betty, Ken). The final results are Barbara 1, Thomas 1, William 2, Hellen 5, Betty 2, Ken 1. My original thoughts were using "and" to define the two nodes' relationship, but the query returned no results. So I am not quite sure about my answer regarding this question. 3. Write a brief memo explaining why the reference counts in the Group Query and Compound Query are similar or different, and why a researcher might have a preference to run the Group Query or why she might have a preference to run the Compound Query? I do not know about this question
  11. Hi Di, The compound and group queries are quite different and if they are needed in a project would depend on the data you are working with or research goals. Below are some links from our online help with more information on both queries: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.90-d3ea61/Content/queries/compound-query.htm https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.90-d3ea61/Content/queries/group-query.htm Regards, ^NVivoSup

  13. Hello @alexquse, I did my Ph.D. research with a similarly structured dataset in which I found a workaround. I would suggest you to take a look at my response to a previous question on the same issue. https://forums.nvivobyqsr.com/topic/5782-comparative-case-study-research-with-nvivo/#entry16869 Please feel free to reach me if you have any questions.
  14. Yes I will try this. I have not begin with my big project, still doing some tests. I have one more question about autocoding. Could this be a way to change the structure of project? I know that the autocoding (existing pattern) is not reliable. But if we have to restructure our project differently, one idea is to re-import a new source and autocode according existing pattern. Does anyone tested? (I'm going to try: I am working on an extract of 500 entries with two open-ended questions).

  16. Hi Di, Instead of a set, you can try running a Coding query and for each attribute value, add a criteria row to search for coding linked to cases with that attribute value, for example: Coded At - Any Case Where Township = Smyrna After this query has run, you can then save the results to a node by right clicking on the node, selecting Store Query Results and selecting to save to a new node. Once the node is saved, this node can then be used in other queries, such as a row input for a matrix coding query. Hope this helps. ^NVivoSup

    Highlighting in different colors

    +1 , make highlighting in different colors for selected nodes a reality !

    Highlight in different colours

    +1 9 years on - it would still be nice to be able to have more options in terms of highlighting-color , e.g. select speakers/cases and assign color to each would be nice in terms of reading some materials.
  19. anyone can tell me the steps of creating a set in Nvivo 12 for mac, for example, create the combination of “Township = Smyrna”, who think the “Pace ofDevelopment = Too fast” and who participate in “Recreational Fishing = yes”so that these cases can be placed in the column of a Matrix Coding Query.
  20. someone can help me !!!! ways to look for cases by attribute except using advanced find. for example, create the combination of “Township = Smyrna”, who think the “Pace of Development = Too fast” and who participate in “Recreational Fishing = yes” so that these cases can be placed in the column of a Matrix Coding Query. I know that group query can filter the cases out, any other ways?

    Text search - parts of words

    Hi Akshay, Any news regarding my question? (I attached a picture with more details in a separate reply ten days ago) Thankd, Amir
  22. I found another way to include paragraph numbers in documents already loaded into Nvivo 12. right click on the file select export from the menu. The export dialog box has an option for including paragraph numbers and exporting to a Word format export the file to a folder on your computer in Word format with paragraph numbers. import that file back into Nvivo If this is possible (it is i tried it), is there a way to add the paragraph numbers without having to export?
  23. Hello, If you would like to use the visuals of text search query, then you need to perform additional coding in order to reach what you want, since text search query does not allow you to filter with a case attribute value. Assuming you have already created your cases for your interviews and case classification attribute for gender, the easiest way would be making a coding query using two criteria: 1) Cases>interviews, 2) Gender>Male. You can set query criteria as in attached picture. Result will provide you all the interviews with male participants. You can save query results as a code with name "Maleinterviewparticipants". Then you can perform a text search for the word "uncle" in this newly created node. Hope this helps.

    Text search - parts of words

    Hi Akshay, Thanks for your reply. Here is an image of the query. As I mentioned before, I am interested not only in "ed" as it appears in the beginning of a word but also at the end of a word. What NVivo seems to provide through this query is "ed" in the beginning of the word. My question: is there a way to get references with "ed" or some of part of a word in the beginning as well as in the middle or end of a word? Thanks, Amir
  25. I am doing a text query and using the word, "uncle." I only need the search to look in Interview 1s that are associated with cases with the attribute "male." I thought I could easily filter to accomplish this. But the item "Classified items where" allowing attribute selection is not usable but I do not understand why. Any insight?
  26. I have not tried this but here's an idea for a work around: Using a word doc, Cut and past the question (put in Header 1 style), then cut and paste all the data from the open ended responses, each separated by the participant number (put the participant number in Header 2 and the responses in normal style). Import into project. Then you will be able to code and search by case.

    Text search - parts of words

    Hi Amir, Thank you for contacting NVivo Support. To investigate the issue, can you please provide me with the screenshot of the details you have entered in the query criteria? Once I have the above information, I will be able to assist you further. I look forward to your reply. Regards, Akshay
  28. Hello, When searching for words or expressions in the Text Search query, I used * to get part of the word, for example "ed", but only got "ed" in the beginning of a word, for example "education". What if I want to get "ed" at the end of a word? (for example, "argued"). Is there a way to do that using the Text Search Query in NVivo? (MAC and/or PC?) Thanks, Amir
