  1. I am currently sitting in front of a dataset of about 1400 tweets captures using Ncapture. I am wondering how I can uncode the data set without having to select just 100 at a time? the view only allows me to select 100 at a time which is just time consuming! on a related note, the reason i want to uncode the items in question is that they are supposed to be part of another dataset. (the data set is august 31st but the data I want to uncode is August 30th) my second question is--- can i remove the August 30th data from one dataset and put it in another? i dont want to completely lose the data if i can help it.
  2. this might seem like a very simple question but I can't seem to figure out for the life of me! I have collected 7 days worth of tweets (approximately 6000) but they were all collected on separate days so i have 7 Ncapture files. I am wondering if there is a simple way of merging the 7 files into one larger one without having to export the files then import them again as an excel file.
  3. Hello, I have two questions in this post actually,but first background. I have 3 weeks of data which I took off of Twitter. I did a search for a particular hashtag and then collected on a week to week basis all the tweets that included that hashtag. I realized after the fact that I cannot collect these tweets as anything but a PDF file because they are not from the past 2 weeks. I have started going through the tweets one by one and copy and pasting data from the PDF into an excel to make it look like a dataset file taken from twitter. My questions are as follows: 1) is there a way to convert PDF datasets of Tweets into an excel file simply? 2) if not, is there an easier way to transfer the PDF data from the PDF into an excel without having to copy and paste line by line into the excel file?
  4. New to Nvivo 11 completely. I have captured a number of days of Tweets using Ncapture and realized I have overstepped how much I want to analyse. I have imported the data into NVivo 11 using NCapture and just want to delete a few days worth of Tweets, is this possible to do? or will I have to manually go through it and uncode all the tweets that I do not want to analyse?
  5. First time poster so I apologise if this has already been asked. I am collecting data off of Twitter using NCapture (with Nvivo Pro 11) across several different days and the NCapture has a few days in which the collection as overlapped. for example, I have collected Twitter data for a particular hashtag I am studying from August 1-24, I have done this in several stints as trying to use the advanced search function and cycle through over 2 weeks of data is very time consuming. in doing this I have realized that I accidentally collected parts of the same day twice and there may be some overlap of identical tweets. simply put, is there a way for me to check if there are duplicates? (without having to sift through thousands of tweets) or, more conveniently, is there a way for me to find the duplicates and delete them (like you can in Itunes for example).
