Dear all,

I am writing in the forum in order to know if there is a way in Nvivo to count the number of words of a source.

I know that Nvivo has a word frequency function but what I need is to know that a document has for example 6000 words, that's it.

 

Using the word frequency function I should export the Whole list and than sum it using Excel.

 

I found a lot of very usefull tools, but I don't see a very easy function like this one.

 

Is there a simply way to get this information in Nvivo?

 

Thank you

Hi maumassaro,
 
You could try the following process to count all the words in a source:
 
1. Code the source to a new node
2. Create a Matrix Coding Query:
  a) At ‘Rows’ select your source referred at step 1
  b ) At ‘Columns’ select the node created at step 1
3. Click ‘Run’
4. In the detail view, right-click the value and select ‘Cell Content > Words Coded’
The total words in the source appear.
 
Regards,
Andrew

Thank you so much!

 

It takes time to do it but it works in both ways described.

In the process above, you can select several sources as rows and several corresponding nodes as columns. A table appears with nonzero numbers at the intersections. In the detail view, when you right-click one of the values and select ‘Cell Content > Words Coded’, it appears for all rows.

You can then export the node matrix query results to excel by right-clicking in its top-left cell and choosing the adequate context menu item.

Hello,

sorry, I tried this and failed. I coded the sources (46 pdf files) to a new node. However, I then cannot find the new node in a matrix coding query. Might it be possible to a bit more specific about these steps?

Thanks,

Dan in KY USA
