Import data from ongoing survey

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

I've been using NVivo for quite a few years but am new to using it for survey data. Sorry if this is a bit of rookie question!

I am about to start working with some Qualtrics survey data. I want to start coding the data while the survey is still open. Is it possible to import new rows of data into NVivo as more people complete the survey? In an ideal world, there would be away of avoiding duplicating those I have already imported and simply appending the new rows to the existing data source in NVivo. In an even more ideal world this would automatically code the open ended questions to the same question (column-based) nodes as their predecessors. 

I'm sure I can do a manual workaround by exporting the data to Excel, removing older rows, and importing to NVivo as a new source (with the potential to then merge nodes)...but I thought I'd check whether there was a more sophisticated way of dealing with this issue before I set my project up in a way that makes neater solutions impossible later!

Thanks heaps for any suggestions. 

Helen
