So I have a mixed dataset - quantitative and qualitative. When importing,it was too large, so I split it into two datasheets: A) one with student ID and comments (in ten columns - ten questions) and the second one has the student ID and then all of the demographics (i.e., attributes).
I followed the instructions for autocoding wizard (for datasheet A) and how to import a classification sheet (for datasheet . I thought this would link the student IDs in datasheet A with the student IDs in dataset B.
I have one set of data in the 'sources' folder which contains all of the comments and student ID. I also have the datasheet B - demographics, in the 'Classifications folder'.
I have gone ahead and coded all of the comments into themes/nodes.
However, now I want to look at these comments in their themes as split by a attribute or demographic variable (i.e., Region, ethnicity, age etc).
However, I now realise that my entire Case Classification sheet has ‘unassigned’ variables for everything!! I cannot run any query or matrix to look at one question (‘Do you use the library?’ compared with age group). This makes me think that I did not load the classification sheet correctly and that it is not linked to the attributes.
How do I match datasheet A and B together so that I can have attributes to my cases.
Thanks in advance
