  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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,

    Coding text in imported excel spreadsheet

    Hello @BWeiz, What you are asking is possible. However, you would need more than one action. Let's say you have an excel file that has 25 different answers from 200 participants. When coding your first question, you realized that participants 3,7,19,34,56,58,77,83,95,111,145, and 198 provided answers that fall into one of your themes. 1) Press "Control" and click above numbers in "ID" column of your imported excel file. You will be selected whole row for those participants. Press Crtl+F2 and code selections as (let's say) "Exciting-R". 2) Create a coding query with using below criteria: a) "Coded at >All Selected Codes or Cases>(Choose Exciting-R) b) "Coded at >All Selected Codes or Cases>(Choose the node you have created for your question 1) 3) Once results are created, click Save Results>Create Results as New Code or Case. Choose Location as you desire then name as "Exciting". 4) Delete node "Exciting-R". You are all set! Hope this helps,

    Exporting text into excel

    Hello @rrminardi, Currently, Nvivo does not have the feature of exporting coded text as matrix excel tables. However, there is a built-in extract feature named "Coding Summary By Code Extract". It is located under Output>Extracts. Using this you can create an excel table that will both include your codes and coded text. You might need to make some adjustments on this extracted excel file to convert into a format that Stata would recognize. Hope this helps,
  6. Hello Sarchie, The easiest way of getting the results you want is to run a matrix coding query. You may put all your response codes (Q1,Q2, etc.) on rows, and then add contextual codes ( physical violence, emotional violence, etc.) on columns. On your results, each cell represents the overlapping of response and contextual codings as frequencies. Although it is not a list, it will let you do what you described. You can also limit this query down to the desired group of items; for example only look for overlapping of codings in interviews that held in a certain city. Hope this helps.
  7. Hello Sarah, Currently NVivo for MAC does not support framework matrices. We all do eagerly wait for development team bring this feature to Nvivo for MAC. As a workaround you may perform a coding query for each participant (case) and nodes (role/identity, activity, aspects of personality, technology use) , and then export results. The downside of this workaround is you will not reach a summary of the content but you will get exact coded text and you must repeat this query for each participant. I hope this helps,
  8. Hello Adam, The easiest way to solve this issue would be to combine all 4 transcripts into a single document. Then apply classifications to your 50 documents. However, in my experience, combining transcripts is not an option in many situations, since each unique document has its own unique data characteristics. In that case, I would suggest you to look at this topic that I previously shared my ideas about a similar question. http://forums.qsrinternational.com/index.php?showtopic=5782&hl=canarik#entry16869 Hope this helps,
  9. Hi Phil, No worries, there is a quite simple solution for your issue. Gdrive (and any other drive) checks the last modification of a certain file and arrange all syncing according to this data. When you finished syncing at your office 1 it is successfully stored in your account. However, I assume when you move to your office 2 you immediately open your project file. That is the problem! Because, it still needs to be synced with the latest version of that file. If you open that file without initially waiting for sync to be completed and then close down the project file. It's latest modification data is changed. Thus, Gdrive now syncs that (older) version back again. Depending on your internet speed, the sync will be completed before you shut down your office 2 computer. Then when you go back to your office 1, you will see the older version after sync is completed. You have two options here, Do not turn off computers in any locations or before opening your project just be sure Gdrive is completed sync on that device. Hope this helps,

    How to see what I've coded?

    Hello Charles, Surely there is a way to see which codes you have used for a certain section of your data. Let's say you open a text document with multiple pages (length is not important). It is possible you might have coded a section with more than one code, and even with 50 codes (again code count is NOT important) you can still see them. However, the more codes you have used the more space you need to display them. This is an expected requirement for ALL software, regardless from their purpose. Take Excel for instance, with a 14" laptop screen you can only see up until to the "U" column without scrolling. When you connect a 21.5" external monitor to your laptop, then you can see up until to the "AC" column without scrolling. Nvivo (and other caqdas) is no exception to this. Having this reality in mind, I would suggest you this: Open your document undock it and send it to a larger screen something like 21,5" (the larger is the better), click view tab and then coding stripes button. This time select "nodes most coding". Click coding stripes button again and select "number of stripes". When you see the dialog box, increase the default number (which should be 7) to the number you desire like 50 or something. Then arrange the border line of your coding stripes section closer to your text. This way you should be able to see all 50 codes that you have assigned to a specific section. Below you can see an example. If you have like 200 codes for a section, just connect your laptop to a bigger screen. In such cases I connect my laptop to my 46" TV and have no problems of seeing high number of coding. Hope this helps,

    Export dataset

    Hi again Janina, It is possible to see those data on a matrix coding query! All you need to do is to code and classfiy information in your data set. Then use matrix coding query via adding those variables into either rows or columns. For example: If you properly code your imported Facebook data, it is possible to see the username/author on the row and date, post, and other nodes on the columns. Yes, I do agree that it would have been much more easier if we had a "simple"!!! export functionality. I hope developers of QSR Mac team are trying to do their best to solve the problem. Hope this helps,

    Export dataset

    Hi again Janina, Remembering your previous posts, I assume you are trying to export your Facebook dataset that you have imported from NCapture. As mentioned before, currently it is NOT possible to select and export a dataset in Nvivo for Mac. However, there is a workaround for this issue. Since you have your data in hand, just go and code however you like. Then use matrix coding query for the themes/concepts that you would like to create a chart for. Each matrix coding query will provide you a table, export this matrix coding query table as a docx file. Then open that file and select table and paste it into a cell of your blank spreadsheet in Excel and chose "match destination style". Voila! There is your table in excel which you can use to create a chart of your selection. Hope this helps,

    quantitative approach to facebook?

    Hi Janina, You are doing it right. Unfortunately, you can only export your matrix in word format with the current version of Nvivo for Mac. Therefore, first export your matrix table as a word file, then copy-paste it into excel. Sorry for the confusion.
  14. Hi Raphaela, When you cross-tabulate your overlapping data, matrix will provide you certain data, like number of coding references. However, it is not possible to show the exact overlapping text in your matrix. As you might already know, to see the exact content you need to click each cell. Thus, you will need to copy-paste each data. On the other hand, you might want to utilize framework matrices, which can provide you the summarized content of the overlapping data and let you export it as an Excel file. For detailed information, please refer to the link below: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/concepts/about_framework_matrices.htm

    Hi Bhupesh, Thank you for your reminder. Yes, I forgot to mention to suggest export matrix table and use excel to create chart. Best,
