Adding attributes to existing cases

Recommended Posts

NVivo 12: I have 280 cases (survey respondents) organised under three cases (case studies). I imported survey results from Excel and created the cases and automatically assigned attributes using the wizard some time ago. I've since found that NVivo can't handle my continuous data for some attributes and have created a new excel spreadsheet which has those data binned into groups that I can use more easily in my analyses. The spreadsheet has a column of the same identifying numbers as was used on the first sheet and the existing cases. I want to import the sheet and automatically assign the new set of attributes but to the classification (person) and cases. If I use the wizard it wants to set all 280 up as new cases and I would have to manually assign each row of data to the existing cases and then delete the new ones. Is there a way to do this automatically through the import process or after rather than manually?
