  1. Email import

    Hi, I am new to NVIVO, so please bear with me if I have overseen something. I have the following problem: 10 emails imported from outlook through drag-and-drog, but as many people send answers from different accounts, I would need to merge two email adresses as they are currently treated as two seperate people. How do I do that? Thanks. SCW
  2. Hi Thanks in advance for any help provided I feel pretty lost in this endevour as NVivo has many, many options and I'm not sure which one I need to take. I have manually produced codes for each of 9 focus group sessions, which I've laid out in 9 separate excel spreadsheets. There were between 6 and 8 of the same people in each focus group. As the example below shows, each spreadsheet is therefore made up of many rows, with each row containing a name, an illustration in the next cell, with the next cell containing the code and then the next one contains a memo/note re' this illustration and the code. So, four items in a row that I need to be able to analyze and which I've now imported. I have created 8 participants (cases) in a new NVivo project and have also imported all 9 spreadsheets with some of the columns being classifying and others being codeable. I have a few questions: 1) I want to be able to code (create nodes) within each of the 9 internal documents so that I can see how the nodes change over the weeks that I conducted the focus groups. (I have done this manually with cardboard so can see there's a 'trend' over the time period and want to be able to see this electronically.) 2) I want to be able to assign a node to one of the cases (person) so that the node is 'linked' to the person who made the comment. Then I can see how the nodes changed over time and how they changed per participant. 3) I noticed that because I haven't linked a node to a case the system is assigning the same node to the same 'source' when this is not the case. If I can assign a node to a case then I won't have this problem I have thought that maybe I can make a new node folder for each of the sessions nodes - so, 9 node folders with codes from each session inside the relevant folder - what do you think of that idea? But it doesn't solve the linking of nodes to cases ..... Thank you very much in advance for your help! Delia
  3. I am trying to code my data to themes so I can see which themes are raised and how often. That is the easy part. However I need to be able to see which of these theme nodes that I have coded to are brought up by various specific denominations of my sources. I have similar and different themes being brought up by various different denominations of my data so thus far I have coded my data to one node per theme, opposed to coding it to one node per theme per denomination of data. To divide up my data into the different denominations I have coded all of my data to at least three nodes (rural or urban, after or before, and job title). So I can use a simple coding query to see all each of the different denominations of my data (for example all data that is rural, before, and management). But my issue is how can I bring up a node hierarchy that shows me all the different themes brought up by this specific denomination of my data. I need to be able to see a unique node hierarchy like this for all of my different denominations of my data. There will be over forty different themes brought up in my data so I would like a much more efficient and clear way of doing this than using a node matrix (because there are lots of empty cells in it). Using groups to do this may be useful but I cannot find a way of only allowing certain nodes to show up in a group. I am at the early stages of my project so if I need to be using a different approach to coding it is not too late for me to be using cases instead of certain nodes or something like that.
  4. Hi, My data involves multiple sources for one person and so I have grouped the sources into cases. I'm hoping to tabulate or chart the percentage of coverage of a select number of different nodes in each of these cases (at present I can only seem to get these percentages for the individual source documents). Many thanks in advance.
  5. I have NVivo 11.4.0 installed on my Macbook Air and I am having trouble with cases and classifications. Every step has been followed to a. create cases, b. create a case classification, c. set attribute values, and d. assign cases to the classification created. Upon following this process, I am not able to see the cases (that represent interview respondents) in the case classification sheet. I am only able to see the attributes I created. Any thoughts as to what the problem could be?
  6. Hi, I am trying to do what is explained in your help file: "Analyze the most frequently used words in a particular demographic. For example, analyze the most common words used by farmers when discussing climate change You could do a coding query to gather all content coded at climate change and at nodes with the attribute farmer—then select the result node as the criteria for the Word Frequency query." So I have 2500 email texts - cases , with attribute "type" and its values "error", "suggestion", "comment". I would like to do a word frequency just on cases where attribute type=error. First I do Query/Coding/Selected items and select Cases/My cases (all 2500 of them). Then I set criteria: Coded at/ Any case where/Survey Respondent:Type equals value Error, and use Spread to Entire Source. I do Run Query but I get all the 2500 results without any "filtering"/criteria. What am I doing wrong? Thank you Mitja
  7. I have been classifying cases for the last couple of months with no issues. Suddenly I am having an issue that I just can't seem to solve! When I create a new case, go into "Case properties" and try to classify it, I get an error message (screen capture attached) and NVivo crashes. I have tried using an old backup version of the same project and it is still happening. I don't think I have changed the case classification that seems to be causing the issues, so I am at a loss! It is clearly something to do with choosing that particular case classification, but I have many previous cases classified in that way and they all seem fine. Any advice would be awesome
  8. Hello. I'm having a lot of difficulties classifying (via autocoding, or coding manually but efficiently) respondents in a survey (and then going on to make sure the responses are matched up with the correct people). I first tried the steps outlined in the Bazeley & Jackson book (2nd edition) from page 201. I was able to import an Excel spreadsheet easily enough using the Import Dataset wizard, and that resulted in a table where I could see each case in a row, and each column represented one type of data. The Nodes detail view shows that nodes have indeed been created for each case and for each codable column. However, the values as seen in the shown in the sheet have not been matched up to each other. As I understand it, this should happen with the Classify Nodes from Dataset wizard (p. 204), but that doesn't appear to have been implemented yet in the Mac version of NVivo. I was able to assign the classification Respondent to all the cases by selecting them all and using Right-Click > Classification. However, when I try to select all the females, for example, to give them the correct value of the gender attribute, the Get Info command is dimmed out. Does that mean I have to set these attributes one by one? I tried coding thematically some of the answers in the sheet. I was able to select the text, and the nodes I created could be seen in the nodes view, but I suspect that NVivo doesn't actually know to which respondent this applies, since the detail view of the new codes just refers to the name of the spreadsheet I imported. It's a bit confusing to see an imported speadsheet with the data looking OK, but then finding (or suspecting) that it appears to be something akin to a screenshot rather than an actual table of data that the software "understands". I should note here that I'm working with a small sample of my data in order to understand the best way to proceed, so I'm very much prepared to try out anything to better understand how this whole process works. Can anyone offer any tips or information to help me make better sense of how this works? Thanks, Rick NVivo 10.2.2 for Mac
