I have a project I was working on and uploaded it to the NVivo 9. All the information is there and recent changes to the folders. However, none of the nodes or references (the coding) I completed for the project is showing up. Did I do something wrong?
Also where are these projects saved. I saved it on my persoanl computer (I see the NVivo folder but where does the project actually save to?)
The project saves to your 'my documents' folder by default. It's a file with a blue round icon called "project name.nvp" When you say 'upload' it sounds like you may have tried to import the other project rather than convert it from say an older version of NVivo to the newer one. Is this the case? What you need to do is follow these steps:
Run NVivo 9
Go to file/open and browse to your documents folder for your old project file
Select the file and select open
You will receive a message saying this project was created in an older version of NVivo and must be converted
Select the convert button
You will be asked to name the new file – name it the same as your old but with 9.2 at the end of the name so you know which file is the newer one in future
Select 'ok' and NVivo will convert and open the file
It should be exactly the same as the old one. If you have any difficulty following this or if I have misunderstood your problem; let me know and I will assist further.
