  1. Hello, I would like to some advice on counting the number of references that are coded at a particular node. I know that I can just click on the node and a count will appear for that node, but is there a way to account for cross-coded references? In other words, I would like to know how many references from my source have been coded overall, which I am having difficulty calculating because many references are coded to more than one node, so if I just count up all of the references that are coded at each node, I will inevitably end up double- or triple-counting some references. If my question is unclear, please let me know, and I'd be happy to try clarifying. Thank you so much for your help. Elisabeth
  2. Each time I try to copy the project to a mac version, I get a error message, which I have continuously reported, but then it fails. I'm travelling, and my personal version is a Mac, while my office version is a PC. Is there any way to work between the two platforms?
  3. Hi all, I've been coding around 260 interviews in NVivo for Mac and now need my team members to be able to access this also via NVivo for Windows. Whenever they try to convert the file though (from different devices), the error message "Copy file failed. The file exceeds the limit allowed and cannot be saved" appears. We need access across platforms quite urgently as we are running against a tight deadline for data analysis - would anyone be able to help? Our local IT team wasn't able to resolve this for us. Best, Nina
  4. Hi all, I have revived an old thread in Nvivo9/10 forum about query timeout. I have gratefully received a response from QSR helpdesk about this topic and so am sharing this in case anyone else finds it useful: Firstly, please follow the steps below to perform a Compact and Repair of your project: 1. If your project is located on a network drive, copy it to your local machine. 2. If the project is currently open, close the project via File > Close. 3. Click the File tab > Help > Compact and Repair Project. 4. At the Select Project dialog box, locate and select the project - select NVivo Projects (*.nvp) to repair a standalone project. 5. Click Open. If the issue persists, you may need to change the SQL Time out period manually by editing your configuration file. This may be a little technical. You can ask your IT support personnel to help you with this if you are unable to do this yourself. The steps are below: o Ensure NVivo 11 is closed. o Go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Wordpad o Click on File -> Open. Ensure "All Documents (*.*) is selected in the 'Files of Type' dropdown menu in the Open dialog box. 1. With NVivo 11 closed, open Windows Explorer a) Right-click on the Windows Start circle -> Explore. 2. Display all hidden files and folders: a) Click on Organize -> Folder and Search Options On the 'Folder Options' dialog, click on the View tab and check 'Show hidden files and folders' option c) Click on the Apply button and click OK. 2. Navigate to the following folders: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\QSR_International1 o You should see few folders that start with NVivo.exe..... Go into the first folder and see if it has subfolder named ""2. If not, go back one level and go into the second NVivo.exe.. folder to see if it has a subfolder One of the two folders will definitely have a subfolder named ""2. Go into this subfolder ( You should see a file called user.config, double click on it to open it.(Open it with Notepad) o The 19th3 line from top in this file (or one or two lines above or below) should have something that says SqlCommandTimeout setting. The next line should have a value of 60. Change this value to a higher number like 120 or 180. o Open NVivo 11 and re-run your query. If you still get the same error. Try increasing the timeout value to a higher number. Please note changing the sqltimeout value may result in the Cancel button (when you run a query) to become unresponsive. Lastly, if you are using 32-bit NVivo 11, it will also help to switch to 64-bit version. Please refer to the link below to find whether you can install 64-bit, http://www.qsrinternational.com/support_faqs_detail.aspx?view=1189 1. Rather than going through all those steps, I found it easier to type %appdata% into my Windows Explorer and choose the right version of Nvivo from there. 2. Just to point out that this number is the version of Nvivo you're running. Your version may be different, so check this first. You can do that by going to 'File', 'Help', 'About Nvivo'. 3. It was not the 19th line for me. I just used CTRL+F to find the SqlCommandTimeout setting.
  5. Hi, I'm currently using Nvivo10 on Windows for my MA thesis. Having completed all my initial coding (with the aid of the autocoding function) I'm now at the stage of reviewing my findings. I've attempted to run several basic coding queries and matrix coding queries. However, I have found the results of coding queries to be inaccurate. Notably, key data is missing despite being assigned to the relevant nodes. To provide an example (For the sake of context, I'm analyzing newspaper texts in the lead up to Brexit) : If i run a coding query to select all 'Daily Mail articles' AND the theme of 'Security risk' - query results show 32 results. Whereas, data at the node level shows a total of 38 articles. This happens across the board with various combinations, it seems that the query results omit data despite it being clearly assigned to a node. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced a similar issue whilst suing NVivo10? Any suggestions/ solutions would be great! Many thanks, R.
  6. Product roadmap

    Is there a publicly available product roadmap for NVivo for Mac that shows when features currently available in the Windows version of NVivo will be implemented for the Mac version? It still seems like there are a lot of basic features that are still unavailable and I'd like to know when each will be implemented if I'm going to continue to purchase licenses. Thanks!
  7. Hi there, I'm using Nvivo 10 and Endnote on my Windows 7 I have brought in the majority of my library but I have a number of articles that I have found since... Is there a quick way to "sync" my Endnote with Nvivo? Or what is the quickest way to add these in?? Thanks Nati
