Thank you a lot for your extensive answer. I can't figure out how to reply on your reply, so I'm doing it this way.
Well, what you suggest: I've tryed it a couple of times before without succes. What I've now figured out:
- If I code each TRANSCRIBED SEGMENT (e.g., 0:10.0-3:05.0: Introduction, teacher motivates the students to start a new math course -> at the right hand side of the video window), the query is not able to change the cells in "duration" (however, if I select to highlight the coding stripes, it corresponds with correct duration on the timeline). It is however possible to double click on each cell and then I can get access to the duration and the coverage percentage.But this is a very cumbersome way…
Another way is to change the cells in 'row percentages'. But: this does not give me what I'm looking for. A query that looks as below would give me the following percentages: 25% 50% 25% 0%
node 1 node 2 node 3 node 4
source 1 1 2 1 0 (cell content = coding references)
- If, instead of coding each transcribed segment, I code the corresponding segment on the timeline (which lights up if I select 'play transcript media') then I am able to change the cells in "duration" and this give me already quite some information. But I still will have to calculate manually the corresponding "coverage percentage". But this will not pose too much problems – however I find it strange that it seems to be impossible to simply come up with the coverage percentage as content for the cells.
- If I have coded the transcribed segments, I cannot fill the cells with "duration" (row percentage works, but this gives me not what I want)
- If I have coded the corresponding segment on the timeline (which lights up if I select 'play transcript media') then I am able to change the cells in "duration" – but still not in the coverage percentage of the nod for the source. But this seems me a way to handle this NVIVO-inconvenience.
One thought on “Reply: How to generate an extract like I have in mind”

The issue with coding from the timeline instead of the transcribed segment is a 'feature' of NVivo which I'm hoping they will fix in version 10 which is due out in June. As you say, coding from the time-line will at least give you the ability to use the cells for 'duration'.
If I'm understanding you correctly, changing the percentage display from row percent to column percent will give you what you want – how much from a given source is represented in each code?
Let me know if this works for you?
