  1. Hi , As some older forum posts indicate there is a problem with the auto summarise function of the framework matrix. The character limit for cell content causes missing data and no way of knowing which cells contain incomplete information (as a result of truncation). I understand this might be problem that is not easily resolved , in the meantime would it be possible to at least state the maximum character limit for framework matrix cells so that present users can bypass this problem and see which of their thematic nodes contain to much data to be auto summarized in the framework matrix so they can be split up in 'thematic-node-A1' 'thematic-node-A2' . Cheers, MC
  2. Hello, I'm struggling to work out how to code synthesised text in framework matrices. NVivo treats this text quite differently to that in transcripts, presumably because it is already 'held' in hidden nodes, meaning I cannot select bits of text and code them to thematic nodes. Please tell me there is a way around this as coding the original transcripts would negate all the work I have done in synthesising dozens of interviews into matrices. The background to my question is this: The literature about Framework states that developing the matrix is about data management (distilling your data into compact, pragmatic categories ready for analysis), and the real conceptual interpretive work follows that. During this analysis you use the matrix as a way of scanning the data, so the matrix is a tool but it is not an end in itself. Yet the NVivo tutorials and help topics seem to either stop at the point of making a framework, or only talk about imaging functions after that. They do not explore the core task of interpretation and analysis, and the coding required to do that. Indexing data in a matrix is not coding; it is just a way of organising data. If you can't code the text in matrices, how are you meant to manage the analysis? Any advice gratefully received!
  3. I am still having problems with data not saving in cells within a framework. I intentionally put information is each cell, but it often gets wiped (backups checked, data missing there too). Also I have found on a couple of occasions that data that is present in a node, does not show up. Can anyone suggest a solution? I wrote last year on the same topic but got no response? What is best way to avoid this problem occuring? It is particularly annoying losing data and having to retype it over and over again. Many thanks Paul
  4. Hello, How can I remove the automatic letters on Framework columns, please? My nodes are numbered and the auto-letters mess up the layout. Thanks, Abby
  5. Hello, I have been maintaining several spreadsheets in Excel because they are capturing qualitative data about ongoing events and my understanding is that I cannot edit a spreadsheet once it has been imported into NVivo. However, I would like to use NVivo for this purpose so that I can start coding the data and linking it to other sources. I note that Framework matrices are editable. Is there any reason why I shouldn't use them for the initial data entry rather than Excel providing they are clearly labeled and separated from the Framework analysis I plan to do across all my data? Thank you, Abby
