Hi,

 

I am working on my structured interviews with 40 cases and 90 questions/ case, so I used the Heading 1 for all 90 questions.

 

Now when I auto code (using either All or Heading 1), use the New Node, then select Tree Nodes/ Cases and name is e.g. Structured Interview Questions, the result is an empty Node or Case as Structured Interview Questions.

 

I have checked with my formating (Heading 1), it seems to be allright, but no clue what is going on.

 

Can anyone please help?

Dear Kan,

 

Although the reason for the lack of coding may be more complex than this, you may just want to check whether the node you are looking at is in fact the parent node and the questions have all been created as child nodes underneath. When you look at the node, is there a '+' sign on the left hand side of the node? If there is, click on this and see whether the nodes for each question you have autocoded appear underneath.

 

Hopefully this will solve your problem, if not, please contact our Helpdesk so that they can help you further with this.

 

Warm regards, Fiona

Hi,

 

I have managed to get the + sign, but I do not understand what autocoding actually does. There are no codes appearing or am I expecting too much?

<_<

 

 

Hi Nancy,

 

When you see a + sign next to a hierarchical node in NVivo (tree or case) that means that there are child nodes of that node which are currently hidden. If you click on the + sign, this will show you the next level of nodes down.

 

Autocoding works by either gathering together text which has the same heading, or that is in the same paragraph position as other text. It can be extremely useful if you are working with structured data, such as questionnaires or focus groups, allowing you to gather together all the answers to each question in the questionnaires or all the information from each person in the focus groups. You do need to make sure, of course, that you have the appropriate headings in your data for autocoding by heading to work successfully.

 

For a detailed desciption of how this works please see the relevant sections of the NVivo online help under 'Using the Software>Coding'.

 

Hope this helps

Warm regards, Fiona
