  1. It's extremely urgent now! I've sent a mail to the support.
  2. I have a project with 32 interviews with with 2 to 3 documents for each interviewee. I have conducted a matrix query. When trying to change the matrix cell content into 'Nodes coded' NVivo freezes each time. My settings are for large projects and I have already rebooted my computer. Still the same problem. What can I do?
  3. That worked. And it's much quicker. Thanks!
  4. When trying to open nodes (I've tried free and tree nodes) NVivo either starts processing and seems to finish but doesn't produce any outcome OR it processes (or at least pretends to) for several minutes and then just stops before crashing NVivo. Nodes with a small number of sources and references seem to work but I've tried for instance a tree node with 63 sources and 1009 references -> no outcome and a free node with 58 sources and 369 references -> crash. How can this problem be solved?
  5. Thanks, Kath. This got me what I wanted. Without any further explanation (what's currently in the help is absolutely insufficient as it does not explain the different choices, the differences and what choosing them does) creating reports has become too difficult. It is great to have choices but they need to be intuitive and - at least for me - they are not at the moment. For me personally I would like to have more information and examples in the online help but also animated tutorials. And in addition to this I would also like to have an online area with reports 'templates' that I can simply import, similar to what Kate has posted earlier on in this topic.
  6. I am still struggling. Is there somewhere a document that describes what is meant by all the different terms used in the report wizard and what choosing each individual one does? Where the differences are? Starting with all the views including node, node classification, project item etc., over the 'available fields' such as node, node.classification, node.attribute value, node.coded source, intersecting node, ... and so on. How do I do for instance: 1) Count of cases (imported from NVivo8/ number of sources per case differ) for one tree or free node and a range of cases (w/o and with list of references) 2) Same as before but several tree or free nodes
  7. Thanks, Kate. That's very helpful
  8. Kate, could you please briefly write down, which options you have chosen for the Attribute Summary with a list of Nodes for each Attribute Value? That might help us to understand better what each option is meant to do. Thanks in advance
  9. Thanks, Claire, for your help with the case problem. It worked perfectly. Regarding sources coded vs coding references. In this case it is a lit review so - apart from a single case where I had to use two sources to form a case - all other publications have been coded as one case each (as a whole as I am looking here at case attributes). But as there is one more source than there are references/cases here I would have expected to see a difference here.
  10. I have imported a project from NVivo 8 where I had combined a range of sources into cases. I now want to establish the number of CASES of e.g. reference type & year of publication (analysis of lit review) with a matrix query. The query is no problem. But I don't know how to get the (number of) cases shown in the cells of the resulting matrix. The two options that are the most likely 'Sources coded' and 'Coding references' both don't work (they actually show the same in my case). How can I do this?
  11. Thanks, Kate. It would be good to have a tutorial for the customized reports and extracts as there are simply too many options. And I don't tend to get the result I would have expected when choosing the different options. Another comment regarding the speed in which reports are created. I have a very good computer with quadcore processor i7 and 6 GB RAM. Nevertheless it takes an awful long time to produce most of the reports.I can often have several coffees until NVivo 9 is finished preparing the report. It takes (much) longer with the new version than with NVivo 8.
  12. Can somebody explain to me how to get a very simple attribute summary report? In NVivo 8 I simply went to Tools -> Reports -> Attribute summary, ticked attribute value and then got a nice report stating the attributes, their values and the number of cases per value. And if I ticked 'Include list of cases' I got the cases as well. In NVivo 9 this seems to be muuuuch more difficult. Too many options with additional options (where I don't know what they actually refer to). So, how do I do that?

    Data Corruption

    I have the same problem with my 'See also links'. Just that they have moved between 2 1/2 to 4 WORDS to the right, which is really annoying as often source and destination don't fit together anymore. I have to redo 123 links ! I think this might have happened when I cut and pasted text and/or an image from word into my NVivo memo. I am also using NVivo 8 SP 3 and have created the document under these conditions. Thanks for giving advice on how to avoid that in the future as all these hours correcting everything is a real waste of time.
  14. I am making quite a few notes and questions in my annotations but have now found out that there seems to be a maximum number of characters that can be used: 1 024. "Data Error: Unable to update the data value: Value must contain no more than 1024 characters When I tried to copy and paste this latest note into a memo in order to reduce the characters I could not go back to my original document tab or to any other for that matter. And I could not close NVivo 8 either. I had to force closing the application by using the Windows Task Manager In addition to that I also have the problem that after saving the file after the 15 minute reminder text seems to get lost or changes that I have made are not recognized.
