  1. Hello all, I want to export all of my coded quotes into a single document. I'd like these quotes to be organized by nodes and subnodes. Ideally, I'd like it to look like this HEADING (NODE 1 NAME) text of quotes coded only at this level HEADING (subnode 1 name) text of quotes coded only at this level HEADING (NODE 2 NAME) test of quotes... etc I did this before by just coping and pasting and it really helped me write my report. Is there a more efficient way I can do this? Many thanks!
  2. Creating child nodes and subnodes seems straightforward - I just drag and drop a node into another node. But how do I do this in reverse? How do I turn a child node back into a parent node? Drag and drop does not work! Many thanks!
  3. Hello all, Can I use NVIVO to code my data in 2 or 3 sweeps? The first time using nodes as codes, the second time creating higher order nodes as themes? I have been reading this very useful paper, which contains a step-by-step guide to doing thematic analysis; http://eprints.uwe.ac.uk/11735/2/thematic_analysis_revised... The paper defines a code as: "the most basic segment, or element, of the raw data or information that can be assessed in a meaningful way regarding the phenomenon" Whereas a theme: "captures something important abut the data in relation to the research question, and represents some level of patterned response or meaning within the data set" According to the NVIVO website "A node is a collection of references about a specific theme, place, person or other area of interest." Are themes essentially the highest level nodes, and codes the lowest level nodes? Many thanks in advance!
  4. Hello, If I have a hierarchy of nodes like so (silly example); 1. Dessert 1.1 Trifle 1.1.1 Sherry trifle 1.2 Ice cream 1.2.1 chocolate ice cream And I code something as being "chocolate ice cream", will it also be coded as "Ice cream" and "Dessert" ? Is this what "aggregate coding from child nodes" does ion node properties. Why is this turned off by default? Thanks in advance, Brian
