Recently, I was demoing NVivo 2 when the topic of Attributes came up I blithely began explaining, going into Excel to set up a table, making sure that either Node or Document appeared in the upper left-hand cell, depending on which sort of attribute I wanted to create... then I imported it and took the group into the attributes menu to show the right-clicking, etc. to add to or change the attribute info.
Well, this group, which was not un-computer savvy -- was amused. They questioned why there wasn't a dialog box to walk one through the process, like a "helper" in Word where you plug the values you want into a form and out pops a letter, I suppose.
Perhaps I have just missed the Attributes dialog box all these year? Anyway, their question intrigued me so I am passing it along. Thanks!
