  2. I have the same issue and the posted .nvp file does not seem to download. Thank you for any assistance
  3. Hello: I have a licensed NVivo project that will not open. Please advise my project is corrup and I would like to restore. NVivo messages that restoration is not possible.
  4. Hi- Moving file from one PC to another (each with a valid NVivo 12 Plus license) via Google Drive (not opened there, of course), was prompted to convert file to NVivo 12 file, which I did. Was prompted going the other way as well. In both cases, coding for 8 out of 10 coded interview transcripts has disappeared. No clear guidance on how to restore a NVB file, which I hope holds previously coded interview files. Please help? Also, I'm unable to find online straightforward guidance on how to restore a file like this - perhaps I've missed it? - seems that would be especially helpful and smart. Please advise. Thanks! ~Carrie
  5. Hi Bhupesh, Thanks for your advice. I merged the project into a blank new project, however, the issue still persists. It also seems to get more frequent. NVivo is now crashing all the time while I am coding which is incredibly frustrating. I submitted a support request, but, unfortunately, I am unable to attach the project file as it is larger than 900MB... Hope you can still advise. Look forward to hearing back from you soon. Kind regards, Ruben

  7. Hello @rsh, When working with datasets it is always better to format source file before importing into Nvivo. Therefore, the simplest solution for your question will be NOT converting -99 with blanks. Keep it as it is, then import and auto-code as you desire. After that, all you need to do is to find "-99" text in coded text of a certain node using search function, then un-code them all from that very same node. The reference count will be same as number of responses. Hope this helps,
  8. Hi, I believe a Matrix Coding Query will be helpful. You can add Respondents(Cases) as Rows and Questions(Nodes) as Columns of the matrix and run the query. The resulting Matrix will show number of common coding reference across each intersection of Nodes and Cases. Here is the detailed information on Matrix Coding Query: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/run_a_matrix_coding_query.htm I hope this helps. Kind Regards, Bhupesh

    Highlighting in different colors

    I just put a note on an old thread also requesting that you should be able to see what node the text has been coded at by running a mouse over it (or right-clicking it).

    What is coded

    Coming back again to this topic. I like the text highlighting. However, the two functions mentioned in Marcus's post would be really valuable. In particular, as someone running a team project, it would be really helpful for me to be able to go through files and see which nodes the individual highlights have been coded at.

    Hi Julie, At this stage, it is not possible to export or print Annotations in NVivo for Mac. Please feel free to raise a feature suggestion at https://nvivo.canny.io/ by creating a post. You can also vote on posts created by other users. When you post or vote on a feature, you will start receiving notification via Canny on the planned/in progress/completed actions. You can view all the annotations in Notes>Annotations folder. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  12. In my office, we regularly code the responses to open-ended survey questions using NVivo. One issue we not have been able to resolve is the best way to deal with non-responses to open-ended survey questions when importing survey data into NVivo. Ideally, when viewing the node for each open-ended question in list view in NVivo, we would like the count of references to display the correct number of valid responses to each survey question (i.e. we would like the reference count to exclude non-responses). Even if we import all non-responses as blank cells (and replace all --99 missing values from Qualtrics with blanks), the reference count for each question node in NVivo references the total number of rows in the spreadsheet for each question (including blank cells), rather than the number of valid responses. We have found a workaround to filter out the non-response data from each question node using a separate classification sheet which indicates whether each respondent answered each question. However, this process has been very time intensive. If anyone has a solution to this issue, your advice would be very much appreciated!

    Export concept map as svg file

    I agree, this would be a very useful option.

    This feature has been requested for YEARS during beta testing and product evaluation surveys, yet we are still waiting. I third this request in this thread.

    Annotations

    Hi there! I have multiple annotations on my transcription, as well as using nodes. Is there a way to print the transcript with the annotations AND the nodes (similar to how you can print the transcript with nodes in NVivo for Mac)? Or how is it possible to look at it from the bigger picture? Thanks! Julie
  16. Would that also work for longitudinal interviews where there would be anywhere between 1 to 10 interviews per participant, for multiple participants? Thanks!

    How to manually code a dataset?

    Hi Bupesh, I'm not sure you've fully understood what I'm trying to do, so maybe I can try again. I have about 1700 essays to code each semester, and want to repeat the exercise in subsequent semesters. 1) Consequently, when it comes to CODING my data, I would like to be able to "Autocode my data based on existing coding patterns". From my understanding of how the Autocode functionality works, I will get a better result if I code as precisely as possible. 2) However, when it comes to ANALYSING my data, I would like to be able to perform matrix analyses of my data. (For example, I might like to know which respondents talk about teamwork AND a growth mindset.). From my understanding of how the analysis engine works, I can only do this if the entire essay (i.e. the entire cell in the excel spreadsheet) is coded at both nodes. Clearly, these two imperatives are in conflict. Is there some way around it, or do I need to code my data twice, into two separate folders, once for later autocoding and once for analysis?

    How to manually code a dataset?

    Hi Peter, Coding the entire row will be fine because this will code all the codeable cells in a row at once. Note that this will create number of references based on how many codeable cells are there in the row. You can also code entire columns to relevant topic. Please refer to the link below to understand how you can use automatic coding for above purpose: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/automatic_coding_in_dataset_sources.htm You can then run a Matrix Query between your Cases and Topic to find out what a student said about a particular topic. Manually coding each cell would definitely be more precise but it will involve a lot of work. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  19. Hi Ruben, To try and resolve your issue, try merging your project into a blank new project. To do this: 1. In NVivo, create a blank new project. 2. Click the Import tab and the click the Project icon. The 'Import Project' dialog box appears. 3. Click Browse and navigate to and select your project file from the Desktop. 4. Click Import. Once the import finishes, see if this issue is resolved in this new project file, which contains your entire project data. If the issue still persists, can you please send us the project file by submitting a support request at https://qsrinternational.com/nvivo/contact-us/customer-support ? Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  20. I have a dataset of student essays - 1700 essays in 20 excel files, which I've imported into NVivo 12 Plus. The database is structured with two files per week and one row per student for each week. There is a set of identifiers (student name, date, etc), with the student ID being the unique identifier in each file (and common across files). There is a node for each weekly essay, with each essay imported as a single excel cell. I want to content analyse the essays for the topics the students talk about. I'm not getting the results I want with machine coding, so I'm going to hand code two of the files (170 essays). Here's the problem: - On one hand I want to analyse the relationship between the codes. (student x talked about topic 1 and topic 2). That suggests attaching the code to the entire cell. - On the other hand, I want to reuse the codes in the future on other files via machine coding. That suggests making the codes as precise as possible. The question is, do I attach the codes to individual sentence fragments, or do I attach them to the entire excel cell? If I attach them to sentence fragments, is there a way of analysing them as if they were attached to the entire cell? Thanks.
  21. Hello, Everytime I try to open the classification sheet (formerly casebook) Nvivo (12 Pro) crashes. I read elsewhere the error may be due to a corrupted project. I did indeed convert my project recently from Nvivo11 to NVivo12. Everything else runs fine though. How can I fix this issue and how do I know my project may be corrupted? This is the error message displayed: Error Message: An item with the same key has already been added. Stack Trace: at System.ThrowHelper.ThrowArgumentException(ExceptionResource resource) at System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2.Insert(TKey key, TValue value, Boolean add) at QSR.NVivo.Common.Business.Domain.CategoryLayout.a(NodeSortOptions A_0, Boolean A_1) at QSR.NVivo.Client.Presentation.Forms.CategoryDetailForm.ah() at QSR.NVivo.Client.Presentation.Forms.CategoryDetailForm.ai() at QSR.NVivo.Client.Presentation.Forms.CategoryDetailForm.a(EventArgs A_0) at System.Windows.Forms.Form.OnCreateControl() at System.Windows.Forms.Control.CreateControl(Boolean fIgnoreVisible) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.CreateControl() at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WmShowWindow(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WndProc(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.Form.WmShowWindow(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam) Many thanks.

    Venn Diagrams

    Hi MRizakis, If you are wanting to see how you have coded a particular file you can do this by turning coding stripes or highlighting on. This will give you an indication of which portions of the file are coded to each code or case. You can find information on using coding stripes at the following link: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.84-d3ea61/Content/coding/coding-stripes.htm If you are after a list of all the codes or cases you have coded a particular file at you can find this information by running a Group Query. The criteria you would select when doing this is to look for “Items Coding” and the change the Scope to Selected items and select the files you are interested in. You can find information on group queries at the following link: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.84-d3ea61/Content/queries/group-query.htm Regards, Heather

    Transcription audio out by about a minute???

    Hi Charles, It’s likely we would need to take a look at one of your files and transcripts to be able to investigate this issue. Can you please submit a support request at the following link and we will be able to investigate this further: https://bit.ly/2CFUHRk Regards, Heather
  24. Hi MauCap, You can find more information about the REFI-QDA project exchange format at the following link: https://www.qdasoftware.org/products-project-exchange/ Information on the current limitations when importing or exporting from NVivo can be found at the following link: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.84-d3ea61/Content/projects-teamwork/refi-qda standard.htm NVivo does support exporting attributes. How these are handled when importing a QDPX file into another application such as ATLAS.ti would depend on how they have chosen to implement the standard. Regards, Heather

    Transcription audio out by about a minute???

    I've been doing a lot of transcription... Of 36 imported transcriptions, 6 were 40 seconds out; 2 were more like 2 minutes out. The section played is always _before_ the correct location. The error is consistent - deleting everything and reloading it gives the same result; and it seems to be a function of the audio, but not of the audio length. All the audio files were converted from AAC, and all are MP3 with constant 2 channels at sample rate of 48,000/sec. Any suggestions, anyone? - Charles

    Venn Diagrams

    Dear all, I have been utilising NVivo for my PhD project which is a study of the rhetoric of the Far Right in Greece and France. I have utilised a number of speeches their MP's have made, and have codified excerpts based on how they frame certain issues. I would like to create a Venn Diagram in order to showcase how their various frames interrelate. For example, part of a speech may talk about the issue of national sovereignty and privatisations. Thus I would have coded the excerpt under these two different nodes (National Sovereignty, Criticising Privatisations). I am aware that Venn diagrams are not available in Nvivo, so I would like to ask if it is possible to see in which nodes and cases an excerpt is coded at, so that I can group them in broad categories (such as External Policy, Economy, Politics etc.) and then make Venn diagrams on my own. I thank you in advance for all your help, Best regards, MRizakis
  27. I'm using automated transcription. It works well enough, and generates precise timestamps. Mostly NVivo imports them correctly. However with some audio files, when I import the transcript, select a transcription line and click 'play selected rows', NVivo 12 Pro Windows 12.4.0 plays a piece of sound that is almost but not quite exactly a minute before the timestamp. The particular example I'm looking at is a long file (1h30), and the error persists all through the file - same at the end of the audio as the start. I've double checked the transcription against the audio, and the problem is definitely with NVivo. I've tried deleting audio and transcript from the project and reimporting both. No joy. Is there any way to fix this? Best, Charles
