  1. Hello, We have someone who has partially coded one of our sources and someone else is going to finish. We also are doing double coding and doing coding comparisons so we want to be able to change what the user OO coded to user RO. But we do not want to do this for all of the sources in the project - just this one particular family/case node. Can this be done automatically or does it need to be changed manually? Thank you, Margo
  2. Hello, We have a large data set of family transcripts that we are double coding for reliability. One researcher codes a set of transcripts (I set up as case nodes) for one family and another researcher codes the exact same family (case node). We each have a version of our project saved in our own network folder and a merge is done once both researchers finish that specific family. We import one project into another, we import 'selected including content' and we 'merge into existing item' We then do a coding comparison and review the entire transcript for disagreements. We each have our version of the project open and we make the necessary changes to the case node at the same time. Once we have reviewed the entire case node and have addressed all discrepancies we do a merge again and another coding comparison. This had been working... Problem: Two researchers did as above but when we did the final merge and coding comparison many of the changes were not saved. We tried this several times, we closed our projects and started again and still the changes did not save. I then noticed that in the case node NVivo was duplicating the second interview for the family. I would delete this, do the coding/uncoding again, merge and coding comparison, and changes were still not saved. What should we do as this is our protocol for our entire project of 64 families with multiple interviews per family (case node). Thank you, Margo
  3. Hello, We have a set of about 27 nodes and we want to find out which data (participant interviews) are coded to more than one node. We want to know which of our nodes are similar to other nodes - either overlap or complement. For example: if something is coded as a belief is it also coded as a priority and a role? or something else as well? Is the best way to do this by pulling up each node and then using coding stripes to see which nodes are similarly coded? We have ideas/assumptions based on our coding but would like to know if there is an easier way and one that is more methodological? Thanks! Margo
  4. Hello, we recently were upgraded to NVivo 11 and noticed a change from 10. When you've highlighted a section to code and right click for the node window you used to be able to select as many nodes as you wanted for the section. We often will code sections to three or four nodes at once. In 11 it only allows you to select one and then you have to highlight it again and repeat the process. I know that if we have coded part of the interview we can use the 'code to recent nodes' option. Why was this change made? Are you away of it? The work around is to use the CTRL key but version 10 had the option. Thanks, Margo
  5. Hello, Can you run a framework matrix on a case node that has been double coded (two separate researchers code the same case node). If so, how does NVivo handle the double coding? Thanks, Margo
  6. Hello Bhupesh, That is not what is happening. I just tried to merge a test project into a master and chose to merge duplicates and the framework matrices are the same but it created duplicates for all of them. It seems that the NVivo we have is not following the below instructions: How NVivo handles duplicate items during importWhen you import project content you must decide how you want NVivo to handle duplicates—you can choose to merge the duplicates or create new items. If you choose to create new items, duplicate items are imported and renamed, so that both items exist in the open project— for example, Interview with Sally would be renamed Interview with Sally (2). If you choose to merge duplicates, the following rules apply: Framework matrices Row header attributes The framework matrix in your project is retained. I will send a help request and attach a word document with the print screen. Margo
  7. Hello, We are using framework matrices to start analysis of our data. We currently have 3 people coding and doing the matrix summaries for individual families in our study. I set up a master folder on our network space where I save the master project and I use this version/copy to do my coding and summaries. I set up two other folders on our network space for the other two current researchers who are also coding and doing the matrix summaries. From my understanding of merging this is what I have been doing. Once a week I have opened the master project and individually imported selected content (sources, coding, annotations, links, summaries), from each of their saved versions of the project. But I was not selecting users I was just importing everything. Then I was saving this new version of the merged project back into the master folder and their two separate folders. They would then continue coding, summarizing etc with this updated copy. Today I finally noticed that the summaries that I had done were being duplicated under the existing summaries. So I tried to just import the work of each researcher and it made duplicate matrices - eg: Family 01 and it would make Family 01 (2) but there would be nothing in the matrix. I am not sure how to go about importing just their work from the week without it changing my summaries, their summaries or any of the matrices already existing. Hope this makes sense - can anyone help?! Thanks, Margo
  8. Hello, Last Thursday one of our researchers was logged into our NVivo project by remote connection. He was coding and saving his work constantly. NVivo stopped responding and then closed automatically. And the file was not saved with the updated version of his work for that day. His words: " When I tried to re-open the file on the network, a dialog box appeared saying a newer version of the file on the temporary folder was available (or something similar I don't remember the exact words) and asked me if I wanted to save that version. I clicked the 'yes' button and I was able to recover some of the work, but still lost almost half of the coding for that afternoon." He was able to save the error log. Should I post it here? We were recently advised to use NVivo directly on our network space rather than my old preference of saving it to our desktop, coding, analyzing etc and then saving back to the network once we are done for the day. I have experienced these crashes using versions 7 and 8. Can you explain and should we continue to save to our desktop to do our work? Thanks, Margo
  9. Hello Simon, You cannot export the summaries and the cell coding into one document. Please see message from QSR support from March 4 2016: QSR Support, on 04 Mar 2016 - 00:06, said:
  10. No it only exports the summaries and not what is in each cell: QSR Support, on 04 Mar 2016 - 00:06, said:
  11. Totally agree! We need to be able to export everything in a framework matrix. I find that I have to export the summaries and then each individual cell - time consuming. Also, I find the space for writing the summaries is quite limited. We have a fairly large set of nodes and tons of data from 64 families. Although it is great to code and analyze in NVivo I still find it easier to export to a word document for easy reading and checking. It would also be very helpful if we could highlight sections in the 'cell coding' as we are making summaries so that others will understand what we are thinking. (eg: I could code several small paragraphs into one node because there are a few lines in each that tell a story). This would be helpful as we are in the beginning stages of developing our coding framework and analyses. However, I have been using NVivo for 9 years and each new edition is better and better!
  12. That is too bad that we cannot export all into one document. I will submit a ticket about the crashing. Thanks.
  13. Thanks, Andrew. I am using framework matrices to do the analyses and have another question. I find that exporting the contents of the summaries is not simple. I need to "select all" in order for it to export all that I have written for the summary into Excel. (it will only export what is showing on the screen) Have you heard of this before? And, I am using cell coding for the associated view and using summary links. Our analysis is just starting up and I want to share everything with our team. But I am not able to export the summaries, the cell coding and the summary links into one document. is this just not possible? And, finally, if I try to uncode one section of the source while doing a framework matrix NVivo freezes on me. (the source opens in a new window, the section from the matrix is highlighted and it gives me the option to uncode) Thanks, Margo
  14. Hello and Help! I have NVivo 10 with Windows. I am working with a fairly large data set of 64 family interviews that range from 2-3 per family and each around 25-30 pages. I have figured out how to set each family up as a case node (from local help) and we have a working coding framework that I have set up as nodes. I have coded a family and done a matrix with the family case node as the row and the coding nodes as the columns. For the beginning of this project I want to be able to export the data that is in each cell to review the actual sections of the transcripts:example: Family 17 and what they said about communication that is captured in that matrix cell. The only way I have been able to do it is to manually open each cell and select all and copy and paste to word document. Is there an easier way? We will want to do all the analysis in NVivo by each cell - are memos the best to use? Thank you! Margo
