  1. I am using NVivo 10 on PC. Recently,I occasionally have this problem. I use the quick coding bar at the bottom to code. It is convenient because when I type the first several letters, the existing nodes will appear automatically. However, this week, I have two occasions when this automatic feeding of nodes disappear. Even after I type the whole node name, none appears in the bar. I tried with several other node names, nothing appear. The way I fixed it is to exit Nvivo. However, I wonder if there is any way to fix this problem without the need to exit the problem? i also wonder what has caused this problem.
  2. We are at the stage in our research where we are developing our coding schemas and categorizations for the fine-grained analysis of our data. We set up nodes as our coding categorizations and, thus, coded our text with these nodes. We subsequently ran a coding comparison and realized that are categorization schema doesn't work for all categories yet. Hence, through an analysis we created a new schema of categorizations and added the newly created categories to the already existing nodes to recode the data that was already coded with the initial categorization schema. What we tried to achieve is basically a matrix. We had two coders => both coded the text with the initial nodes. Since we are working with a server project, our project owner changed the two coders' initials (as this is what we knew we could do for recoding in a stand-alone project to have check for re-test reliability quite easily). The two coders coded the same text again with the newly set up nodes. Our problem is now that we can't access the initial codings anymore from the two coders. Since the profiles in a server project are based on the Windows-accounts, we only see the new initials when trying to do a coding comparison. Have the initial codings been lost now? Have the initial codings been overwritten by the new codings? Have we now double-coded the text and not even the new codings are reliable? We'd appreciate any insight or help on this dilemma. Many thanks! Kind regards, Franziska
  3. I am wondering if it is possible to generate a report that exports the copied portions of the pictures that I have coded. Currently, when I run the coding summary report, I get all of the normal data with the exception of the picture that I coded. Obviously I can live without being able to print this off, but it would be much more convenient. Am I doing something wrong or missing something? Thanks for your help.
  4. I have been coding audio sources to an existing node. When I access the node, and try to play the segment back for any of the references, it does not play back just the coded segment; it continues to play the audio file past the coded portion. What is the correct process for coding so that it plays only the coded portion? Here are the steps I currently follow: - Listen to the audio file until I have a codable segment. Hit "pause" or "stop" - Drag my mouse to select codable segment. - Go to "Analyze", "Code Source at", "Existing node"....select node; hit Okay. Then, to play the coded segment, I go to the node, select the source from the summary tab or the audio tab. - Go to "View", "Highlight", "Coding for all nodes" and "Coding stripes", "All node coding"....it highlights the entire recording and plays past the coded portion. Please advise! Thank you.
  5. Hi, Imagine a node structure as follows: Universities Structure Size Society Structure etc If I am coding some material using the quick coding toolbar, it would be great to be able to code to any of these nodes just using the keyboard - having to switch between keyboard and mouse really slows me down. Unfortunately, that isn't possible at the moment. If I want to code a passage of text under Nodes\\universities\structure, I have to select 'Nodes\Universities' on the left hand drop-down of the Quick Coding toolbar, and then type 'Structure' in the right-hand side. It would be much better if I could just type '\\universities\structure' in the right hand side. Nvivo doesn't allow this because it won't let you use slashes in the text box. I think this would be a very quick and easy change which could save hours - no, days! - from a big coding project.
  6. Hi, I'm having trouble working out the most efficient way to set up coding for 60 interview transcripts. I have two participant groups who completed separate interviews, however sometimes they spoke in each other's interviews as well, which I will include in my coding. So I don't think I can analyse accurately through the use of an attribute query. I am analyzing interviews where these participants discussed why they were satisfied or dissatisfied with three different services they received. The sources of satisfaction and dissatisfaction will be my themes. From what I can see, it seems the three services will have different themes but there will also be some themes that are consistent across the three services. I want to see the results overall as well as by participant group and by services individually. I would like to analyse the themes under a) satisfaction and dissatisfaction for the following combinations: 1. participant group 1, covering service 1 2. participant group 1, covering service 2 3. participant group 1, covering service 3 4. participant group 1, covering all three services combined 5. participant group 2, covering service 1 6. participant group 2, covering service 2 7. participant group 2, covering service 3 8. participant group 2, covering all three services combined 9. both participant groups covering service 1 10. both participant groups covering service 2 11. both participant groups covering service 3 12. both participant groups combined, covering all three services combined What is the best way to code themes of satisfaction and dissatisfaction so I can discuss the results according similarities and differences between the participant groups and services? Thank you for your help!

  8. Hi folks, I am switching to NVivo 10 part way through my study and am struggling to adapt my clunky "manual" codes to ones that are better suited to use in qualittive software. For example, my old coding scheme used codes such as these: - participating in class (parent code) ----aids learning (child code) ----waste of time (child code) - presenting in class (parent code) ----aids learning (child code) ----waste of time (child code) I understand from some very helpful forum posts that a cleaner way to code in NVivo would be: - participating in class (parent code) - presenting in class (parent code) - usefulness for learning (parent code) ----aids learning (child code) ----waste of time (child code) In theory this second approach should make it easier to make good use of the analytic tools in NVivo. For purposes of this conversation let's imagine some of the codes act as nouns (the act of participating, the act of presenting) while others act as adjectives modifying those nouns (aids learning, does not aid learning). My challenge is this: often sections of source text relate to more than one code. This is challenging when I can no longer tell which "noun" codes are being modified by which "adjective" codes. For instance, a subject might say, "Participating in class and presenting - they're kind of the same, but the first one really helps me learn, where the other is useless." In my old coding scheme, I would have coded that sentence as both particpating in class/aids learning AND presenting in class/waste of time. But in the new coding scheme, I would code it as participating in class AND presenting in class AND aids learning AND waste of time. How will I know which behaviour aids learning and which is a waste of time? This is only one combination of a clash of codes. I have many more. How have others addressed this issue? Is there a better way to structure the coding scheme, or can the software offer a solution? Thank you in advance, Michelle from Vancouver
  9. Is it possible to code non continuous blocks of text as 1 unit rather than coding them separately? e.g. I want to code the question I asked in my interview then a later part of the answer without the intervening start of the answer e.g. researcher question...... later part of answer not researcher question (irrelevant first part of answer) later part of answer Thanks
  10. I'm trying to use Boolean-type operators for an advanced coding query in Nvivo 10. Here (in ordinary Stata-type analysis language) is what I would like to do: Generate results for: (node == Sumba AND source == (letters OR diaries OR reading)) OR ((node == Sumba AND node == Book) AND source == master) In other words, I have four sources. I would like to combine, in one set of results, a certain combination of search criteria for one souce, and another search criterion for the other three sources. I have tried to do this using the drop-downs in Advanced Coding search, but encounter two major problems. 1) Though one is given the option of IN (Selected Items) for each set of query terms, it appears to only use one -- whichever is entered last before the run -- for all query terms. 2) I can't find a way of odering the search (effectively putting brackets around parts of the query), so that it knows which ANDs and ORs refer to which sub-sets of the query. I'm new to Nvivo (working with Nvivo 10 running on XP through Parallels on a Mac); I'm sure there's some obvious solution but can't find it in Help or the forums. Thanks for pointers.
  11. Hi, When I import my documents into NVivo I use the function which allows me to creat nodes as well, so then I can create attributes on the nodes for future queries. I have, however, always coded using my raw sources rather than doing my coding from the nodes created based on the sources. Does this matter at all? What is the difference between coding from the source vs the node? I have run queries and still get all the results I need... Thanks for the help, Sam
  12. I have coded three interview scripts by creating nodes. For example, all three interview scripts (or articles) have some text coded generically under the node interview question one. I then went into each script and have done some detailed coding creating nodes. When I then open the interview question one node, I would like to see all the other detailed nodes which have been applied to it. However, when I go into the view coding section it only allows me to see the most recent or most dense nodes and not all of them. Is there a way just to get it to show me all the nodes just applied to the text that comes up in the interview question one node? If I say I want to see the most recent 50 nodes, it shows me the last 50 nodes which I created and not the ones that just apply to the text I am looking at. I have over 500 nodes in total, so I really need help!
  13. Hi everyone-- I'm trying to find a way to easily count and see text that I've coded with 3 different codes. In a matrix query I can cross tab 2 sets of codes but I can't find a way to look at 3 sets of codes at the same time. I need to be able to easily count (hopefully not by hand) how many documents have certain combinations of 3 codes and then see the actual text coded. Any ideas?
  14. Hi, I'm new to Nvivo software. Did a test run before starting, coded data and did a word query. Everything worked fine then started coding my transcripts. Then when I tried to run a word query it did so on all text not just words I coded. I noticed that in the trial run I did word query on a internal source, straight manuscript instead of transcript in audio file. Should this make a difference or is there something I am doing wrong when running the word frequency query? I need to organise the information under the nodes I have created into tables and graphs to compare the data. A generic example: positive node (number of words coded) vs negative node. Thanks
  15. Hi everyone, I've got a question about NVivo9. I haven't found any answer in the forum, but could have missed it. In NVivo9. I imported my dataset from Excel. It contains answers to closed and open-questions. I coded 3 open-ended questions in a hierarchic node structure. Let's say: - question_1 ----- A1 ----- B1 ----- C1 ----- D1 - question_2 ----- A2 ----- B2 ----- C2 ----- D2 - question_3 ----- A3 ----- B3 ----- C3 ----- D3 Some answers were coded under 2 lower level categories. For example: one participant's answered to question 1 was coded under A2 and B2 (not sure whether this makes any differnce). In the classification, I have Respondents, where each closed-questions for the respondents are classified. This classification is done using the following node: - Respondents ---- Repondent1 ---- Respondent2 ---- Respondent3 ---- and so on... Each of these nodes has all open-ended question for the respective respondent. Each of them is classified as the "Respondent" classification (this was done automatically using NVivo9) I also have 1 extra node: - Data ---- question_1 ---- question_2 ---- question_3 each of these nodes has all answers for each open-ended question I can create Matrix coding query using the Respondent classification vs question_1, question_2 or question_3 subnodes. What I haven't figured out how to do is to generate Matrix coding query to compare question_1 with question_2 for instance. I've tried several different options and I'm really struggling now. What I want to analyse is, for example, is how many people were coded as A1 and also A2 and so on. If possible, I want to generate 1 query to cross tab A1, B1, C1 and D1 with A2, B2, C2 and D2. Thanks for your help, it's much appreciated!
  16. Hi, I have copied some text passages which are important for my work from PDF files (Sources) into Memos (referenced). After that I have coded the Memos with different Nodes. What I need to know now though, is the ranking of the coding (Nodes) for each Source. Is there a possibility to get this information out of NVivo. It could basically be a table like this: | Source Name | Node1 | Node2 | NodeN | | Bible | 1.58% | 3.92% | 0.04% | | Quran | 4.12% | 0.17% | 2.41% | I want to rank the occurrence of the nodes later and compare them with other data. If it is not possible to get a percentage of the nodes compared to the original Source it may helpful to get a percentage of the codings of the Memos. Or if no percentage, maybe a list with the total occurrence of nodes for each Memo/Source. Thanks in advance. Roman

    "Cluster" Nodes

    I think it would be valuable to be able to "cluster" nodes. Essentially you would pair up one or more branches of tree nodes and then when you coded something at this "cluster" you would have to select sub-nodes from each branch. Below is an example to make it clearer. Imagine that I have the following tree nodes: Refers To Refers To \ Student Work A Refers To \ Student Work B Adequacy Adequacy \ Adequate Work Adequacy \ Inadequate Work And for methodological reasons I only code complete sentences. Then in one of my pieces of data someone says "Yeah student work A was pretty good, but student work B really needed more." This would get coded with all four nodes, but that would be completely unhelpful. Instead I'd like to code it once at (Student Work A AND Adequate Work) and then again at (Student Work B AND Inadequate Work). So the "cluster" would be that I could somehow "cluster" the "Refers To" nodes and the "Adequacy" nodes. Then when I coded something at this "cluster" I would have to select sub-nodes within each branch. Currently, to get around this what I end up doing is creating "duplicate" sub-nodes, so my tree nodes actually end up looking like this: Adequacy Adequacy \ Adequate Work Adequacy \ Adequate Work \ Student Work A Adequacy \ Adequate Work \ Student Work B Adequacy \ Inadequate Work Adequacy \ Inadequate Work \ Student Work A Adequacy \ Inadequate Work \ Student Work A This often results in either very unclear nodes (for instance "Student Work A" means two different things above) or very long names for nodes (for instance, I call the sub-node "Adequate - Student Work A").
