  1. I coded some data. I then copied the file and gave it to another coder. She coded the same source documents against the same nodes and gave the file back to me. Now what do I do? When I try to look at a coding query it asks me to compare between User Group A and User Group B. What does that mean? Regardless of what it means there is only one userid available for selection in both A and B and that is mine. I've also looked in File/Info/Project Properties and there is a tab there called Users. It only has one userid in it as well. How do I see/compare the work of the other coder? Thanks.
  2. I have more than 900 respondents and I've just manually coded my data against each respondent. If there's an easier way I'd love to hear about it! I'll be following this post with interest.
  3. I have a number of sets that are based on classifications and coding. As a simple example let's say I have some text coded against "opinions in favour of X" and I have other text coded against "opinions in favour of Y." Then I have a set called "All Favourable Opinions" that is that comprises all my text coded in favour of X and all my text coded in favour of Y and all my text coded in favour of other things too. I created this set using a coding query. If I decide that a piece of text coded as "opinions in favour of X" that incorrectly coded and I uncode it, will my set "All Favorable Opinions" update automatically? Or do I instead have to re-run the query that created the set in the first place? Thanks.
  4. Mine has reached 89.9kb and has slowed right down. I can't even get large queries to run at all. Am I reaching the max size? I've got nearly 1000 nodes but I read somewhere that there isn't a node limit, just a size limit (I just don't know what size that is).
  5. My sets are mainly subsets of coded references gathered together using coding queries. I have about 30 of these sets and I'm about to create another 30. I then use those sets as input to matrix queries. It's a pain sifting through all 30 to find the set I want and it's going to get worse when I sort through the other 30. Is there any way of creating sub-folders within the Sets folder so that I can organise my sets? I'd like to group all my sets of references relating to females together, all my sets relating to males together, all my sets based on certain age categories together. I found an old question from 2007 asking a similar question and people complaining that their folder of sets had become unwieldy. Surely this has been improved by now, but I can't find a way to create subfolders within the Sets folder to help me organise my sets. Is there any way to do this?
  6. It does thank you. All references were coded by one person so that's not the issue. That's why they weren't displaying as a full list of references.
  7. I have just finished coding a whole lot of data, but I can't seem to see all of it inside my nodes. For example one of my nodes says it has 424 references, but when I open the node it only shows me about 1/4 of these. This is the same whether I look at this node in summary or reference view. When I look at text view I can see all the sources that have been coded against this node as thumbnails. Do I have to open each one of these one by one in order to see the data? That's not very helpful for getting a sense of the whole node. Is there some way I can open the node and see the entire 424 references?
  8. This is probably very basic, but the only way I know how to move nodes is via drag-n-drop. So I just dragged and dropped a node to make it into a child node and then realised I shouldn't have done that. How do I move it back up to the very top level? Drag-n-drop seems to work for moving nodes to be "under" another node (ie. making a node into a child node) but I can't seem to drag it back out again. Thanks.
  9. I have just imported a spreadsheet which is a classification dataset. Each node is in Column A of the spreadsheet (one node per row), with attribute values in the other columns. Each value in Column A is unique. I then tried to use "Classify Nodes from Dataset", thinking that would create nodes from each of the values in Column A. (I'm new to Version 10, but this had worked just a few minutes before with another classification sheet). However the following message came up: Your action did not succeed due to the following error: Node is not valid What would make a node invalid? I want the node to be created if it's not already there, and I thought this routine would do that. I'm still in set-up mode, so I haven't got any actual coded data that will be messed up when I take up the sensible suggestion that is bound to be posted in response. Thanks - Susan
  10. Thanks Leonie, THat worked a treat. And what a coincidence that it should be you who replied. When I did some NVIVO training I was telling my teacher what kind of research I was doing and he suggested I try to look up a project you did (ages ago) that he thought might have had some relevance. How weird is that? I actually never found the project/publication/report that he wanted me to find and I can't remember now what he said you had worked on that seemed related to what I was doing. In fact I just looked at my notebook and all I have written down is your name and no description about the project. I'm analysing discussion threads on a health forum - importing the text into NVIVO and coding it according to whether it shows evidence of social support and/or social capital within the forum. Don't know if you've touched on anything like that . . . I believe whatever triggered him to think of you was some time ago. The teacher was Dr. Roger Vallance if that means anything. Anyway, thanks for the "uncoding tip". Sesl
  11. I'm coding from an imported Word document. I know that if I code 2 sections of text which are "joined" in the source document, NVIVO will join them together in the node and count them as a single reference. But what if I want them counted as separate references? Is there a way to do that? The imported Word document I'm using is actually a table. So say I code Row 3 of the table into a particular Node. Then I code Row 4 of the table into that same Node. NVIVO joins them together and calls them a single reference, but I would like to count them as two separate references. Is there any way of "unjoining" them within the node?
  12. I am coding from an imported Word document. I accidentally coded some text incorrectly, so I did an "uncode". The text is still there, kind of gray-looking, and it says that I have 0% coverage. That's good. But it is still counting it as a reference. So I have an extra reference in the reference count for that node. I want to use the reference count in my statistical analysis, and it's not going to be useful if it has all of the uncoded material counted in the reference count as well as the genuine references.
