Good morning,

I am trying to run a text search query with two words - I want to search for instances where they sit next to each other.

I looked at a previous post (below) and tried the syntax: "happy" "busy" ~1. However the results that are returned only include the word busy.

Using the NEAR option in Text Search Query - NVivo 12 for Windows and Older Versions - NVivo Community Forum (nvivobyqsr.com)

Any advice on what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks very much.

Hello @FKS,

If you would like to search for instances where they sit next to each other, you need to use proximity operator as below:

"happy busy" ~1

For further information please refer here.

I hope this helps,

Regards,

Hi,

Thank you for that! When I put in this proximity operator I do find references where happy and busy sit next to each other. But I also get references with only the word 'busy' in it. How do I make sure that that doesn't happen?

Thanks very much.

Hello again @FKS,

That does not seem to be an expected behavior.
