    File Classifications

    Hey guys — using NVivo 12 for Mac to code a number of transcripts, and hoping to attach name/location/date to each, to be able to make comparisons over time, etc. Having trouble with File Classification sheets — the existing files never seem to be found, whether the source files (transcripts) are imported before or after the classification sheet. I've imported a CSV with names identical to the file names, but they never merge. I've tried adding to an existing classification with attributes for each column, or creating a new classification — nothing seems to work. How can I use a .csv to actually add metadata to the files I have (or can import)? Thanks! <a href="https://ibb.co/zJKPQRb"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/TLzPY8R/Screen-Shot-2020-04-27-at-5-49-21-PM.png" alt="Screen-Shot-2020-04-27-at-5-49-21-PM" border="0" /></a>
  2. I have a (.xlsx, or .csv) dataset with about 250 respondents, including demographic info and, in one column, full transcripts. Each transcript is about an hour long, and so the viewing format of 100 entries per page is cumbersome. The hour-plus transcripts are also typically in single paragraphs, and so the code-striping seems to stripe the entire cell in the dataset for every applicable code, instead of just the line or two that are relevant. Would you import every row in the dataset as a separate file? If so, would the recommendation be to import them all as documents (.txt or .doc), instead of datasets? Huge thanks. Glad for any advice.
  3. Hi, I am a new user of NVivo 11. I am importing interview audio and time-stamped transcripts and finding that NVivo is not importing .MP3 audio correctly. The problem (example): I have an interview audio file of 1 hour 15 minutes, saved in .WAV format, with a file size of approximately 500MB. In order to reduce overcrowding on my desktop hard-drive, I compressed the file, converting it to .MP3 format. The new file is approximately 100MB, and still shows '1 hour 15 minutes' in the file>properties>audio panel. When I try importing the original .WAV file into NVivo, the wave-form appears correctly, and the audio track length is correct (at 1 hour 15 minutes). However, when I import the (matching) .MP3 file, the track appears as over 3 hours long - 1 hour 15 minutes of audio plus over 2 hours of silence. Why is this a problem? This means that when I import a time-stamped transcript, the audio and the transcript are no longer synced correctly. Request: Of course I can just go ahead and use the original .WAV files for all of my interviews - however this will quickly become infeasible due to the large file size. Any suggestions about what might be causing NVivo to interpret the .MP3 files incorrectly, or how to solve this issue? Thanks! Chris
  4. I use Zotero as my ref manager. I am trying to import a series of PDFs into NVivo for OS X to use for a literature review. No matter what format I use to export my selection of articles from Zotero, I cannot import them into NVivo. Half of the time I can't get the software to accept the bibliographic index file. When it does accept the format and the "import assistant" comes up, I get the error: "Import Error: Unable to parse bibliographic data file." Can't start my work without getting these articles into NVivo. Any ideas? Using version 12.5.0 which is the latest.
  5. Hello all! I have two NVIVO Projects. I have a document I have coded in one project, and I would like to copy it, along with all its coding into another NVIVO Project. How do I do this? Additional context if needed: I do my literature reviews in NVIVO and code the journal articles for my literature review as I read them. I have multiple NVIVO projects One NVIVO project for each different body of literature I work with, (For example, one NVIVO project for all articles related to Institutional Theory, another project for all papers related to Identity theory, another for all articles related to Feminist Theory). One NVIVO project for methodological papers/theory, One Project for each of my actual research projects (with the actual interviews/journals/artifacts from my fieldwork). I have some journal articles that span across multiple literature. For these, I have coded the papers within my Institutional Theory NVIVO project, but now I would like to also include in my Identity Theory NVIVO Project. When I copy (or export/import or whatever) the journal article into the new project, I want the article plus all the coding and nodes for it to transfer. I've tried to export the NVIVO project from one project and import it into the other. However, no matter how I try to do this, I only seem to be able to get NVIVO to transfer over either 1) ONLY the journal article without any related code information or associated nodes, or 2)ALL the journal articles and ALL the codes and nodes from the original project. I just want to copy 1 journal article from one NVIVO project to another, and retain my coding and any new nodes that were created. Any ideas? Thank you!
  6. Hi, I can't find online anywhere exactly which versions of maxqda projects can be imported into NVivo 12. Could you please advise? Thanks Jenni
  7. Hi, I can import mp4 video files successfully in the 32 bit version of NVivo 12, but not into the 64 bit version. The advice for NVivo 10 was to use the 32 bit version, has there been any update on this for later versions? http://www.qsrinternational.com/nvivo/support-overview/faqs/why-do-i-get-errors-importing-or-playing-particula Is there anything I should be doing to get it work on the 64 bit version? Kind regards Baljit
  8. Hello there! We are a research team working in NVivo4Teams (server project). Our data consists of a range of data types all supposedly compatible with NVivo. However, we are not able to import some of the file formats into the project. Word documents and jpeg photos are imported as they should be. But Nvivo do not recognize excel sheets, MP3 files and quicktime videos. Our data is located on our organization's secure server and we use a remote desktop solution to access and work in NVIVO4teams. I hope someone is able to help! Thanking you in advance.
  9. Hello, Does anyone know how to open or import a MaxQDA 12 file into NVivo 11? I am currently working on a project with a researcher who uses MaxQDA 12. She is supposed to share data with me for further analysis. So she sent me her project file which is a .mx12 file. I could not open it with NVivo11, nor import it in any way into my project file. I asked her if she could save her project into an .mx5 file (or earlier version), but apparently this is not possible. She could export it into a .mex file, but I could not open it either. Does anyone know how she can send her data? Is it possible to export it in an .xml file or any other filetype (atlas.ti, else?) from MaxQDA12? Or is there any other way to open a .mx12 file from NVivo 11? Thanks. Olivier
  10. Hello, I can't import an MP3 file even if this format should be a recognized format (http://help-nv10mac.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/import_audio_or_video.htm). As stated on this link I tried to open it in Quicktime and exported it. As you can see from the attached screenshot, also this solution did not work for me. Did anyone have the same problem and found a solution?
  11. Hi Team, I have many references with both endnote bibliographic data and associated .pdfs. I have been trying to import both together through the Data/FromOtherSources/Endnote wizard, and I think I am following the instructions/set up correctly from here: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/exchange_data_between_nvivo_and_reference_management_tools.htm?rhsearch=endnote&rhsyns=%20#Understand_how_files_associated_with_references_are_handled and here: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/concepts/about_document_and_pdf_sources.htm. I have also checked the Endnote file location so these should be accessible but there's a possibility this is still not right. It is important to my research that the attributes from the bibliographic data are attached to the external reference as well as the pdf so I can see how the issues and arguments in the field have developed over time. Advice appreciated, I think/hope this is something simple I've missed as it looks like this is what the wizard is set up to do. Cheers, Elizabeth G P1 EN w Att Test.xml
  12. Hi Team, My second question for today is also about endnote - my bibliographic records are central to the design of my systematic literature review, which means that I need to set up each endnote reference as an individual case node in Nvivo and code/link other items about the same article to that case. This is partly because I need to export multiple versions of my data from Endnote to Nvivo to separate out the abstracts from other 'notes' and to identify individual authors etc. So my question is - where can I find the Endnote record number in Nvivo after import so that I can use it to create unique cases and code/auto-code to cases? I have checked the .txt/xls and .xml files that I can export from endnote and I can see that the record number is included in the export from endnote when the right filters are used for the export, but the record number seems to disappear in Nvivo post-import (see attached screenshot). Mysterious. Appreciate it if anyone can help me find these as I am sure I can make a work-around but it would be better to have a more reliable-repeatable process. Cheers, Elizabeth G
  13. Hello, I am in NVivo 11 for Mac, and I'm trying to import audio files, but am getting an "Unable to generate waveform" error (in two different error formats oddly). I have <20 .mp3 files that were all recorded on the same device. When it errors out, Nvivo Helper is open on my dock. My OSX version is El Capitan. Here is what I have tried so far: 1) When I first tried to import into the "Interviews" folder in the Internal Sources folder, I successfully imported a few files and got errors on others. Some of these errors read "Unable to generate waveform", while others read Error: Cannot import - unable to generate waveform". I tried again, and a few of the errors cleared. I could not get them all. 2) I tried importing from both my Dropbox folder and from my local drive. Same thing. 3) I realized it might be the file size and decreased it by lowering the bitrate. To make things easier, I stupidly deleted the successfully imported files and re-imported all of them. Now none of them will import. 4) I used a solution from the forum and opened each file in Quicktime and exported it as audio only. This converted the file into an AAC (.m4a) file, but it increased the size. So I then compressed it by decreasing the bitrate and created more lightweight .m4a files. These still would not import. 5) I tried re-installing NVivo. I tried starting a completely new project. I tried messing with the security preferences. Still getting the error. 6) I gave up on importing the files and tried linking the files as external sources. This I did successfully, except NVivo does not recognize them as audio files, so I can't transcribe in NVivo. Please tell me what to try next. I am out of ideas. Thank you!
  14. I have sources that have the name of a person, say Ahmed Hamza. I have an excel spreadsheet with lots of attribute data about each person, like Ahmed Hamza. I can import the excel spreadsheet as a node classification sheet. 1) When I do this, there is a way NVivo will recognize that each entry in one column, the names, should become nodes? The process here does not specify if the column with item 1,2,... become nodes in NVivo. 2) Assuming that #1 works and now I have a classification sheet where each row is a person coded as a node and also classified as person with his attributes, here is next question. Can I then tell Nvivo to find every instance of each name and code them all at the node of that name (which is classified as a person?) For example, Ahmed Hamza is imported via #1. Now I want to make sure that wherever in my sources "Ahmed Hamza" appears, those references fall under the node I just created. Thanks!
  15. Hi there, I am wanting to use NVivo to manage historical document data, much of which I have as jpg files. Also, it is possble to treat pdf documents as picture files, rather than text files? Is it possible to import and code jpg or other picture files in the latest version of Nvivo for Mac? I had thought this would be the case, but I can't see how to do it. Thank you! Rachel
