  1. Hi, I'm looking at importing several thousand of documents into NVivo. I know that there will be duplicate sources under different names. Is there a way of removing these duplicate sources (in bulk) upon import or once all documents have been imported? I am NOT merging two NVivo projects. This is a new project. I'm looking at reducing the number of documents by first elliminating duplicates or extremely similar documents from the analysis. Thanks, Maciej Karpinski, Ph.D.
  2. Creating a case report

    Hi, I'm trying to generate a report that gives me an aggregate number of individual and organization cases in my project. I'm having difficulty navigating the field that would generate this type of report. Any suggestions? Maciej
  3. Creating Reports

    Hi, I'm trying to create a variety of reports to provide to my management. Here is what I'm trying to report: Table 1: - Number of sources entered into NVivo AND the percent of sources coded against all nodes coverage BY source classification Table 2: - Number of sources coded AND number of references AND the percent of sources coded BY selected nodes Table 3: - Word count BY source classification I'm having a lot of difficulty trying to get NVivo to generate these reports. I'm combining various fields, and am presently at a loss. Any help would be of great value. Thanks.
  4. When dealing with Refworks, the process of linking the bibliographic data to the internal sources can be a bit more time consuming. What Mahammed suggests unfortunately does not work. Refworks does not export to an Endnote XML file. It has its own XML version, which when exported is not recognized by NVivo. This is what I did. Click on the export tab in refwork on the right of the screen. A window will pop up and ask you what format would you like to export your citations. Choose the first option: "Bibliographic Software." Once exported, save the file as a txt file. Then go to Nvivo, go to External Data in the ribbon, Import group, click From Other Sources, and then click From Refworks. Choose the file that you exported from Refworks. A dialogue box will appear. Keep the default settings unless you need to change them. Then go down to the bottom left, and click on the "Advanced" button. It is here that you can associate the Refworks citations directly with your internal sources. Go to the heading "Matched Sources" and pull down the drop menu for each source. Find the correct INTERNAL source and associate the two. If the INTERNAL source is not one of your immediate choices, scroll down to <select existing>, which will pull up the list of your internals. Choose the correct internal, and voila....your bibliographic references are now linked with your Internal sources. If you have approximately 300 sources or so, this can take some time, but it IS possible.
