  1. Have you considered running a case/node matrix query? This would present you with a table of each case down, and which nodes have been coded to each case. If you want to do the matrix for only a particular set of cases, you can pick and choose by choosing which items you are interested in. More info here http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/run_a_matrix_coding_query.htm
  2. Hi everyone, I'm trying to spice up my report with some word trees. My project contains 99 documents. When I try to visualise the text search query with a tree word, it gives me all the words that come before/after the searched word. Is there a way of limiting the number of results/branches? For example: I'm searching for the word 'education', is there a way of displaying only those words that appear at least ten times before the word 'education' and at least ten times after the word 'education'? I've attached a jpeg of a word tree of one document, there is not a chance I can input th
  3. I think it would have been handy to know that upfront. As Nvivo stores all other files, this is a pretty esoteric piece of knowledge. Anything you can do to make this more obvious for other users?
  4. Hi folks, Sadly I think I get to wear the dunce hat for the week. I'm running interviews as part of my project. Because it is on a sensitive topic I have committed to transferring each interview onto my PC as soon as I can, and deleting it off the Dictaphone. It's encrypted, but it's harder to steal a desktop than it is a Dictaphone. I hope you can see where this is going and why this is a problem. I imported today's interviews into Nvivo11: clicked on Data, Audios, and then imported directly from the Dictaphone connected to my PC. Looking through the project log, I imported to interna
  5. I have posted a solution to this in the Nvivo11 forum.
  6. Hello, Sorry to revive an old thread. Do you know if this works on Nvivo11 too? I can find the appdata files for Nvivo10, but there's no such line of code in the .config files (I can't find an isolated.config file either). Or is there a more elegant fix in Nvivo11 now? With thanks, Julia
  7. That was indeed the missing step. Thanks marcioandrei!
  8. I'm trying to automate adding classifications in my dataset. I have gone through the steps outlined in the below in the 'Classify nodes from values in a dataset' section http://help-nv10.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/classify_nodes_(set_attribute_values_to_record_information).htm? When I go to 'Classify Nodes from Dataset' I get the attached error message, 'Before classifying, you need to add at least one classification to your project'. My dataset does have classifying fields uploaded, and I have autocoded each row for each respondent. What else am I missing? With th
  9. Incidentally, I've tried copy and pasting the word 'further' from the original text into the query function. Sadly no joy.
  10. Hi folks, I'm trying to do a fairly simple text search within a body of documents. There are a total of 38 documents, with about 920k words between them all. If I try to do a query for the word 'further' I receive no results. However, if I do CTRL+F within a document I find the word 'further'. I'm trying to find out how often the phrase 'further education' pops up in these documents (along with a few others). Any idea of how I can get around this discrepancy, or why the query tool is not picking up this word? Many thanks in advance! Julia
  11. At the very least it would be helpful to have an answer to say that this is not possible. Incidentally, I am now going for plan B. I have exported the list of my documents and nodes as a matrix. I will merge this dataset with the classification spreadsheet in SAS and take it from there. I would have though this is something that Nvivo should be able to do for you, providing context to your data, but it looks like this is stuff you need to do manually. Quite brutal for 650 articles!
  12. Hi Joy, I'm not sure if Nvivo has this functionality. However, if you have a list of post-codes there's no reason why you can't use google fusion tables.
  13. I'm interested in doing this too! I was operating under the assumptions that once I did the coding of data, I could then overlay the attributes on top by importing the classification sheet. I have really struggled with the actual process. The above seems like a good idea, but if there's a neater way then that would be even better. My project involves a set of documents. The information about these documents (such as date published, author, journal, etc) are saved in a classification spreadsheet. The documents themselves have been coded for themes, now to spot patterns I'd like to connect
  14. D'oh! Thanks for the support, Simon. I'll see if I can fox something up out of other software.
  15. I'm doing a broad internet based research project. It goes something along the lines of - entering a few terms into a search engine and then analysing the content of the search. I'm quite aghast at how much work is involved in the initial stage of data collection. I have to document the searched results and why they would be picked for research or discarded. What I'd like to know is whether there's an elegant way of automating the compilation of the dataset using NVivo (like you can with twitter). Otherwise what I've done in the past (with more focused searches) is to use Excel for t
  16. Hi Bhupesh, thank you for your response. I'm afraid this isn't quite what I'm after (unless I'm misunderstanding the terminology). I'd still like to create a node matrix to see how the different coded segments relate to each other. However, I would like to create matrices conditional on each attribute to see if the nodes have different relationships for a defined value of goods.
  17. Hello, I'm afraid I'm once again banging my head against my desktop. I'll try to explain as best I can what I'm trying to do, but if anything's unclear please ask below for further details (the answer may be in the details, after all). I have a classification of 'Value' where goods talked about can have either one of the following three attributes: 'High value', 'Medium value', and 'Low value' (not named 'budget' for consistency). I've already created a node matrix to see if any of the nodes are strongly correlated within the text. So for example, I have learnt that the node of 'st
  18. Hello, I have autocoded my documents via text query. I am now trying to sift through the node to make sure I only include data that's relevant, but I can't seem to uncode some bits of it. I have no idea how to get around this. Is there a solution? I've got an image below to show what I mean.
  19. Ah, I see. Thanks! Could you please explain what a compound query is?
  20. Hiya, I'm having the same issue. I've looked at the suggested link but I'm afraid that's not very useful if you don't know the correct syntax. Could you please provide an example of combining wildcard search with the 'near' operator? Many thanks, Julia
