I'm working with a large corpus of transcribed material and need to search for all instances where there is a question (where the transcriber has ended a sentence with a question mark). Ideally, I would have all sentences that end with a quesiton mark found in a search and coded.

As you know, you can't simply do a text query for a question mark, as this is used as a search operator. But are there ways to circumvent this? 

Thanks :)

Hello Arneolavnygard,

Please refer to below topic:

Thus, it is always better to modify your transcribed data before importing to Nvivo. 

Although you mentioned that your research data is quite large, I would consider replacing "?" with a word or random text to allow Nvivo to find what you are looking for. 

Hope this helps,
