    Hi Ben,

    Thank you a lot for all your effort. I managed to open the file in NVIVO 10, but still have some problems:

    For unit 108: I do not need the parent node to give me the sum of all its child nodes (as in unit of meaning 108 seems to be the case). What I want to see in the parent node, is how  I coded its subnodes. For example,

    • if I coded subnode A to be present, then I want the parent node to display '1'
    • if I coded subnode B to be present, then I want the parent node to display '2'
    • if I coded subnode C to be present, then I want the parent node to display '3'

    Each unit of meaning gets one code: or the subnode A, or the subnode B, or the subnode C.

    Further, I do not understand: "You should use the same identifier as you are comparing multiple source videos. Once you do this you will be able to update the ‘Units of Meaning’ nodes in this matrix with the remaining video sources and when you re-run the query, the matrix will update the tables/results automatically. I manually coded a few O.V.T.N child nodes to ‘Unit of Meaning’ 108 to demonstrate that the matrix was working properly."

    and "ou were intersecting the sources with the codes rather than the ‘Units of Meaning’ nodes."

    What I did: I autocoded each unit of meaning to be represented in the nodes folder, and I crossed these autocodes with the codes.

    Finally, the file I have downloaded, is a read-only file, and I am not allowed to open your revised query.

     

    Once again,

    Thanks a lot for all your efforts so far!!

    Kind regards,

    Hendrik

    Hi Ben,

    Thank you for your post.

    It still doesn't give me what I was hoping for. After aggrgating the parent nodes and running an adjusted matrix query, this is what I get:

    (the second column is the parent node which is aggregated, now; the next three columns represent the child nodes). It seems that the column representing the parent node, just gives information on wheter any of its' childnodes were coded (1) or not (0). I get the same result if I run the quiry only with the parent node and without the childnodes (then I get only the second column).

     

      A : 0. V, T, N V T N
    1 : 212.1 1 1 0 0
    2 : 212.10 1 1 0 0
    3 : 212.100 1 0 1 0
    4 : 212.101 1 0 1 0
    5 : 212.102 1 0 1 0

     

    What I would like to see as an output is the following:

      A : 0. V, T, N
    1 : 212.1 1
    2 : 212.10 1
    3 : 212.100 2
    4 : 212.101 2
    5 : 212.102 2

     

    where a 1 indicates that I coded the fragment childnode 'V'; and a 2 indicates that I coded the fragment the childnode 'T' (and a 3 would indicate the childnode 'N').

     

    Changing the cell contents (right click on a cell still doesn't change the thing). I am going crazy on all these 'practical' issues πŸ™

     

    Another thing I just remarked. I did these codings now by means of selecting the transcription in the transcription field, right click, select 'code' from the dropdown menu, assign the codes.

    when I now run a matrix query, it cannot change the cell content into 'duration coded'. What is this all about?

     

    Kind regards,

    Hendrik

    Hi everyone,

     

    This message is partly in line with message I posted a couple of days ago, but is more extended now (see the three problems).

     

    I am coding in NVIVO9 and I have three problems which I list below. I will first give a short description of the project.

    I am coding 32 videotaped fragments. Each fragment gets ‘cut’ into meaningful units of information. As such, most videotaped fragment get cut in about 500 meaningful units. I am coding it by means of play mode ‘transcribe’. This means that each time I play & stop the video fragment, another line in the transcription part is added (containing the timespan for that specific line). So far so good.

    My aim is to see for each meaningful unit (these are my lines in the transcription part) how I coded these. A  matrix query can solve this, after I created a new column in the media transcript, numbering the newly created cells from 1-500, autocode these to a new node which results in a creation of a parent node 'Units' which in turn consists of all the autocoded units. That enables me to see the information in the following way:

     

                                   CodeA.1              CodeA.2              CodeA.3              Code B.1             Code B.2

    Unit 1                   1                                                                                            1

    Unit 2                                                   1                                                                                            1

    Unit 3                   1                                                                                            1

    Unit 4                                                                                  1                             1

    Unit 500

     

    Problem 1

    Numbering each newly created cell (with the aim of autocoding – see above) for 32 videotaped lessons takes tons of time (32 videotaped fragments, +/-500 units of meaning for each videotaped fragment = 16000 cells to number manually). Is there a way to number these cells automatically so that I can use these cells with the aim of autocoding?

    Problem 2

    I would like to see the information in this way (and not in the way as depicted above):

     

                                   CodeA                  CodeB                 

    Unit 1                   1                             1                                                           

    Unit 2                   2                             2                                            

    Unit 3                   1                             1                                                           

    Unit 4                   3                             1                            

    Unit 500

     

    Is this possible?

     

    Problem 3

    I have problems with video fragments that I coded by means of drag & drop from the timeline. Although coding stripes show me that I coded these fragments (both coding stripes below the time line and the ones on the right of the transcript field), when I run a matrix query (rows = units of meaning; columns = my nodes), I get the message that all cells of the matrix are empty. Two more rarities along the same line:

    –          When I coded three subsequent meaningful units with the same code, and did this for one of these three erroneous, and I uncode this by clicking on the specific coding stripe (and then select uncode), both the other two coding stripes disappear too.

    –          When I try to uncode by means of selecting the transcript line, then right mouse click and select ‘uncode’ in the dropdown menu, all my nodes are greyed out (meaning that I did not use any of the nodes to code the fragment?? – this is in contrast with what the coding stripes tell me).

    –          When I move the cursor on the horizontal ‘coding density bar’ (the one below the time line) I can see how I coded the specific fragment (a list of nodes that I applied on the fragment shows up). BUT When I move the cursor on the vertical ‘coding density bar’ (the one on the right hand side of the transcript field) I cannot see how I coded the specific fragment (no list of nodes that I applied on the fragment shows up).

    All these problems as described under ‘problem 3’ disappear for the video fragments that I coded by means of selecting the transcript line, then right mouse click and select ‘code’ in the dropdown menu, an then thick all the nodes that I want the fragment to be coded.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, since I am running toward an upcoming deadline!

    Best, hendrik

    Hi,

    Thanks for responding that soon! I have two more questions.

    First, I can carry out the steps as written above (creation of a new column in the media transcript, numbering the newly created cells from 1-353, autocode these to a new node which results in a creation of a parent node 'Units' which in turn consists of all the autocoded units. However, when I run the matrix query with the newly created nodes in the colums, the content of all cells is zero. This should not be possible since all the units of analysis (autocoded into new nodes – these are my columns) have been coded. Does anyone know how I could circumvent this problem?

    Second, and not as big a problem as the first one, is there a way to get in the colums for every maincategory (my parentnodes) how I coded this maincategory (the childnodes that belong to the specific parent node)

     

    this is wat I get now (if my cells wouldn't be empty – see problem 1):

     

                               Code A.1                 Code A.2              Code A.3           Code B.1           Code B.2               ….              Code E.3

    unit 1                      1                                                                                                                    1                                                  1

    unit 2                                                        1                                                          1                                                                          1

    unit 353                                                   1                                                                                     1                                                1

     

     

    and this is how I preferably would like to see it:

     

     

                           Code A                 Code B              Code E         

    unit 1                      1                            2                     1                                 

    unit 3                      2                            1                     1                               

    unit 353                 2                            2                      1                                                          

     

    Many thanks in advance,

    Hendrik

    Thanks!

    This helped (a complete shut down and start instead of making use of the restart function).

    Best, Hendrik
