Having watched this video that explains how to import datasets into Nvivo (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWBUH-hCAEY), I still can't manage to import my chosen dataset. I have an excel spreadsheet containing a forecast for a product demand in different countries. So my column A is UK, Germany, France, and Denmark, and the headings for Column B, C, D, E, etc are 1990, 1991, 1992, etc until 2020. The content of the spreadsheet is just numbers. Now I want to create a relational database where the demand in Germany in 1993 will return that specific value from the spreadsheet. I imported my dataset, and nothing is created automatically, I have difficulties making the nodes, and somehow I made a classification instead of actually making a node. Some cells are white, some grey, I don't know which cells should be white and which ones should be grey. I don't know how to actually create my nodes automatically. Could you please help me with some steps I could follow, or tell me if what I am trying to achieve is actually doable in Nvivo? I would really appreciate your help. I might not have explained my issues very clearly, so do please tell me if I should explain myself better. Thank you ioana
Apologies if the answer to this is in your extensive Help and online tutorials - but I've looked and so far been unable to find an answer. I'm classifying nodes which represent my interview participants. I want to import demographic data for each participant (age, income, education level etc). This info is in Excel, but during data entry was entered into the spreadsheet as a number rather than the value (ie Education level had 5 possible responses (1,2,3,4, or 5) which correspond to 1= up to Year 10, 2=Year 12, 3=TAFE etc). I want to import the data from this spreadsheet, but want it to be appear (under Attribute Value) in NVivo using the appropriate education level not the number that was used in the spreadsheet. I can see that under New Attribute you can specify the Value, but I don't want the Value to be 1,2,3,4 or 5 - I want it to be 'Up to Year 10', 'Year 12' etc. Can I import the data as is (ie as numbers) and then change it to the 'descriptive' attribute value that I want to use in NVivo? Or do I have to make the changes in my original Excel spreadsheet? Many thanks Andrea
