Returns in cells in Excel import

20.10.2014, 02:32

Newbie here! I'm importing a large number of blog posts that I've scraped from the web. I have them in Excel but the actual post content doesn't import correctly if there's a return. Specifically it's the 2 required columns, a column for date, title, url, and post content. One row for each blog post. I deleted what I importednand replaced the new lines in Excel and the re-imported, but is there a better way? Should it work? I would imagine some surveys with longer answers might have new lines?

Thanks in advance,
Christina

Hello Christina,
Welcome! MAXQDA should import the content of a cell that contains text as one body of text during the import from spreadsheet. It would probably be a good idea for you to contact the MAXQDA support team directly at www.maxqda.com/support and send along the excel file you want to import. This way they can check if there is something in the excel file that needs to be changed for a successful import process.

Best regards,
Julia
