Work with relationships between columns in a database

Recommended Posts

Hello good morning,

I am a researcher at the University and I am currently checking the possibilities of the Nvivo software.

I am currently conducting a study and I have doubts about how to carry it out, I expose the situation.

I have extracted data from a Facebook account by Ncapture with 3 data columns, one with the publications of the brand, another with the likes of the publications and another with the response of the users to these publications.

The first step of my study is to categorize only the publications of the brand, this is not a problem, through the frequency of words I have managed to obtain different categories or nodes. In this way, I obtain categories or nodes with the messages that are associated to each category or node.

The problem comes now, first I want to check how many likes have the messages of each category or node, that is, obtain a database only with the messages of the nodes next to the column likes. I have not managed to do it and I do not know how I can do it, not even working with Excel.

And second, the same thing but with the answers of the users, to obtain a database with the answers to the messages of each category or node, this I have not been able to do either.

I would like to know if there is any way to do this through the Nvivo software, even if it can be supported at some point in Excel. It is an important study for me and I would like to know if it is possible to do it with Nvivo.

Thank you very much for the attention, a cordial greeting.

Hi macdcai, 

Depending on how you have coded your data you may be able to run a matrix coding query to find the information you are after, though you may need to do some manual work to get your data in the format you require. Please see the following link for how to run a matrix coding query:

If you are after project specific advice, we do have a paid training and consultancy service who can assist you with approaches to coding and running queries that will best suit the aims of your research. If you’re interested in this service, please feel free to reach out to training@qsrinternational.com for more information.
