Importing Word Documents with Notations & Comments

Recommended Posts

petalong    0

I've inherited coded transcripts that were done in Microsoft Word. Both coders are noted by different color combinations, with the comments being the code/node. I need to import those document into NVivo to collate and organize it. If it were just a handful of transcripts, I'd just redo them myself, but there are too many. Is there any way that I can mass important and have Nvivo code automatically, based on the highlights?

Hello Petalong,

Importing high-lighted coding from Microsoft word and auto coding it to nodes in NVivo is not supported at this stage. To transfer any existing coding you will need to re-code the document in NVivo.

Another possible method would be to apply paragraph styles to the data in the word document and then import and auto code. Please refer to the below link for more information:


I apologise for the inconvenience.

Kind regards,
