Merging Classification Sheets

Recommended Posts

I am working with four classification sheets in NVivo. Each classification sheet pertains to a different category of participants, e.g., Key Informants, Interviewees etc.

In hindsight, I do not think this was the best way to group participants into cases and classifications. For example, I am trying to get a sense of the demographic spread of ALL respondents, but because I have participants grouped into the four classification sheets, I am not able to get a complete picture when charting cases by attribute values. I am able only to chart attribute values for cases within a single classification sheet and not across multiple classification sheets.

I would like to avoid reassigning cases to a new classification and reclassifying the attribute values for each item. 

Thus, I would like to know the least labour intensive way to merge the four classification sheets? If there is no efficient workaround, are there ways to use other tools in NVivo (e.g., search folders or sets) to ascertain the demographic spread of ALL respondents and produce visualizations by using my current structure?  

Thanks so much for your help!

Hi Di Feng, 

Thanks for the suggestion. Could you please elaborate on what you mean by 'survey folder'? The four classification sheets are already in NVvio, how do you suggest I place them into a 'survey folder'? 

thanks,

Hi Bhupesh, 

I eventually came to realize that this function/process already existed.

Hi, I just came across this thread and am having a similar issue. I have surveys from supervisors and workers but want to be able to query for all. I created a new classification that is for both, but when I try to copy the supervisor or workforce cases into the new classification I am unable to and the 'Merge' option is greyed out.

Any thoughts on how I can combine these two case classifications?
