  1. Hi Cassie, This report unfortunately cannot show both the theme node, coded text and the classification attributes of intersecting nodes. However, as a workaround you can use the coding stripes feature. To do this, open theme node in detail view and turn on a coding stripe for the attribute required. The below link has more information on coding stripes. https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/coding/coding-stripes.htm The node detail view with coding stripes can be exported by printing the node references but selecting to print to a file instead of a printer, you may see an option to use Microsoft Print to PDF or similar. Hope this helps. Regards, ^NVivoSup
  2. Hi Cara, You can try making a copy of your project then deleting the case classifications in the copy of the project and see if that helps. You may also like to look at the literature review workflow outline on the following link, this is an example of how such a project may be set up: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/concepts-strategies/using-nvivo-for-qualitative-research.htm If this does not resolve the problem, we would suggest someone take a look at the project to understand what is required and suggest a solution. QSR Support are not trained to provide guidance in situations like these however we can provide the contact details of nearby NVivo trainers and consultants who can who can provide this service at a cost. If you would like us to arrange this please send your details to our team via info@qsrinternational.com. Regards, ^NVivoSup
  3. Hi Angela, Cases will act as the link between the source documents and the theme/auto-coding nodes. Typically these cases would be a unit of analysis in a project and only one reference would be coded to them, the source document. References from interview participants would be coded against the theme/auto-coding nodes. As long as the theme node is coded from the same source attached to the cases, there is a link. Hope this helps. Regards, ^NVivoSup
  4. Hi Mandy, A codebook is a document that has names of your nodes along with their description. NVivo 12 supports importing codebooks in qdc format and you can have two codebooks in a project. If you are referring to exporting separate codebooks, you can select the codes and export them to separate codebooks. Refer to the link below: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/nodes/export-nodes.htm Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  5. Hi Liz, Printing coding stripes seem to be the best option. You can open a source, turn on Highlights & Coding Stripes and then print this to a PDF. This will show you entire source with names of your nodes along with highlighted sections in the source that have been coded. Here is detailed information on Highlights and Coding Stripes: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/mac/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/coding/highlight-coding.htm https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/mac/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/coding/coding-stripes.htm Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  6. Hi Leslie, You can right click on your cases, click Create As>Create as Code/Node to convert the cases back to nodes. Thereafter, you can delete the cases. I hope this helps. Regards, Bhupesh
  7. Hi Asterinidae, Case attributes and values can be imported by using a classification sheet, see the following link for more information: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/classifications/classification-sheets.htm Hope this helps. ^NVivoSup
  8. Hi Peter, Thank you for contacting NVivo Support. Unfortunately, there is no way to exclude specific excel rows/columns after you have imported the dataset in your project. You will need to edit the excel file outside of NVivo and then import the excel file in your project. I hope this helps. Regards, AKshay
  9. Hi, If all 5 interviews are in a single document, you can create 5 nodes based on interviews and code respective interview text to those nodes. Then you run a Matrix Coding query between interview nodes and your theme nodes. The resulting matrix will show the number of common coding references across interviews and themes. The other solution which you've already tried is to have these interviews in separate documents. You can then run a Matrix Coding query between interview documents and nodes. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  10. Hi, There are 2 scenarios when duplicate entries can occur in a framework matrix: 1. If you have previously created a framework matrix in your project, the summaries are not deleted from the project even when you delete the framework matrix. If you then create another framework matrix which contains the same intersection (I.e same combination of themes and cases) this summary will be automatically added to your framework matrix. 2. When the auto summarise function is run, it adds a new copy of the summaries, rather than updating the existing summary. So if the auto summarise feature is used more than once, the summaries will get duplicated. A workaround for now would be to manually erase these summaries from your matrix (backspace or select all the text and delete). In regards to the issue about matrix not picking the data, the framework matrix cells have a character limit of 8000. This can result in missing data in cells where character limit is exceeded, when you use Auto-Summarize feature. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  11. Hi mhraymond, you can find references that were coded after a certain date by running a custom report. You can find information on how to run a custom report at the following link: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/projects-teamwork/create-reports.htm#CreateareportusingtheWizard To find all the references coded to a node after a certain date select the following criteria for each step of the report wizard: Step 1: Select to create a report from the 'Code' view. Step 2: Include the following fields: • Code.Name • Coded File.Coding Reference.Coded Text • Coded File.Coding Reference. Modified On Step 3: Add the following filters: • 'Code.Name' 'In' • 'Coded File.Coding Reference.Modified On' 'On or after' Step 4: Group by Code.Name For steps 5-7 you can click next to accept the defaults. On step 8 you will need to set a name for your report and then click 'Finish'. When running your report tick the check boxes next to both of your filters, and use the Select buttons to choose the codes and date ranges you are interested in. The output should show the code name, the coded text and the date it was coded. Regards, Heather
  12. Hi Gail, I have attached a corrupt dummy project with this email to help you recover the project from the .nvb file. Please follow the steps below to recover your data from NVB file: 1. Download and unzip attached file(based on your NVivo version) to your computer. 2. Open NVivo, click on Open Other Project, then browse and select the dummy file saved in step 1. 3. You will be presented with an option to recover from a project recovery file. Select your .nvb file from the list to recover the project. If your project does not appear in the list, you can try searching your computer for any .nvb files, these are project recovery files. 4. The project should open once recovery is complete. I hope this helps. Kind Regards, Bhupesh NV12CorruptProject (for restoring project backups).nvp.zip NV11CorruptProject(for restoring project backups).nvp.zip
  13. Hi Audrey, We've sent you an email with some more information on this. Regards, ^NVivoSup
  14. Hi ellisjen, If you are merging two projects, each with coding on a document, that source document will duplicate if both copies do not have the same name, folder location and content. In this case you would need to undo the edits or add these to the unedited version so that both match before merging the projects. The below page has some information on how NVivo determines duplicates and how they are handled when a project is merged: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/projects-teamwork/import-items-from-another-nvivo-project.htm ^NVivoSup
  15. Hi Mandy, Windows and Mac can share an NVivo project, the project needs to be converted between Windows and Mac formats using the project converter included with NVivo for Windows. Both NVivo for Windows and Mac will need to be the same version to share the file. This link has more information on how to convert a file: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/projects-teamwork/work-with-projects-windows-mac.htm ^NVivoSup
  16. Hi Mandy, NVivo 12 will open an NVivo 10 project however project files are not backwards compatible, a project saved in NVivo 12 cannot be opened in NVivo 10. ^NVivoSup
  17. Hi Nell, So that we can assist with this issue, can you please log a support request here: https://bit.ly/2PpHC6p and include a screenshot of any error messages you are seeing. ^NVivoSup
  18. Hi Jules, I believe that you have also contacted us directly via a support form and you've resolved the issue by formatting the document in NVivo. Let us know if you continue to experience issues. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  19. Hi Mike, Documents, PDFs, Externals and Memos can be annotated in NVivo 12 for Mac. You don't need to change any settings. Refer to the link below for instructions: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/mac/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/notes/annotations.htm Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  20. Hi Nic, It’s not possible to get quite the output you are after. The closest thing you could do would be to view your dataset with coding stripes turned on to get an indication of how it has been coded. You can find information about turning coding stripes on at the following link: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/coding/coding-stripes.htm As for finding the number of your survey participants coded at each of your theme nodes, something you might want to explore is running a matrix coding query. For example, you could have a matrix coding query that has the 15 codes from Q1 as the rows and the 5 from Q2 as the columns. As you won’t have any references coded to both your Q1 and Q2 sets of nodes, you would need to change the query criteria to show references coded at the row criteria NEAR the column criteria and change the proximity to find references in the same dataset row. Once you have run your query, you can change the cell content to display cases coded rather than references coded. This will give you the number of survey participants who have coding at each intersection. Another one of the cell content settings you may be interested in is the row percentage. This will show the percentage of the total value of the row coded to each of the columns which would let you find information such as ‘Of the participants who say we do X better, 30% say it’s because of funding’ and so on. You can find information on how to run a matrix coding query at the following link: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/queries/matrix-coding-query.htm To set some of these query options, you will need to follow the instructions to run the query outside of the query wizard. After setting the criteria to search for rows NEAR columns, you can click the ‘Options’ button to change the proximity. You will need to change the proximity to ‘In Custom Context’ and then click ‘Specify’ to set the proximity to the same dataset row. I’ve attached a few screenshots showing where you can change these options. Regards, Heather
  21. Hi Audrey, What process are you following when you are merging the projects together? You should be able to merge the two projects together following the instructions at the below link: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/projects-teamwork/import-items-from-another-nvivo-project.htm? When merging projects, if two project items are duplicates the project item won’t be imported again and will appear on the list of items not imported. Coding to this item will be imported and merged with the existing coding. If NVivo successfully detects that your document is identical in both projects, it’s expected that the document will be on the list of items not imported. The coding from both your coders should be present in the merged project. If the memo only exists in one copy of the project, the merged project should contain this memo. If both copies of the project contained this memo but with different text the merged copy of the project would contain both copies of the memos. NVivo will only merge the memos together if the text is identical, otherwise both copies are kept. You would need to manually edit the memos and delete the second copy. If your projects still don’t seem to be merging as expected, please submit a support request at the following link as we may need to take a look at your files: https://www.qsrinternational.com/nvivo/contact-us/customer-support Regards, Heather
  22. Hi aatrainor, You can find the NVivo 12 help at the following link; https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/welcome.htm The option to show or hide annotations is present in the View group in the ribbon. The tab this appears on will depend on the source type you have open. For example, if you have a document open this will appear on the ‘Document’ tab, while with a video it would appear on the ‘Video’ tab and so on. Regards, Heather
  23. Hi Bonnie, You can find information on the privacy of your transcription data at the following link: https://www.qsrinternational.com/nvivo/support-overview/faqs/nvivo-transcription-faq If you require any further information please contact DataProtectionOfficer@qsrinternational.com Regards, Heather
  24. Hi Bonnie, If you want to start coding on the video timeline and then import a transcript later on you will be able to do this. NVivo treats coding to the video timeline and coding to the transcript as separate references. Importing your log files later will be more difficult. You will not be able to import these as transcript rows if you already have a transcript, so you would need to manually edit your transcript in NVivo to add these. Regards, Heather
  25. Hi bjohn, Transcripts created with NVivo Transcription contain timestamps and will sync with your audio/video file in NVivo. You can find information on using NVivo Transcription with NVivo for Mac at the following link: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/mac/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/files/nvivo-transcription.htm Regards, Heather
