Coding Excel data

04.05.2015, 23:46


I currently have an Excel file, about 2,000 records and 8 fields. One of the fields (named comments) has short sentences, and the data varies from record to record (there was no standard for the data entry but they are sometimes similar ). Is there an easy way for MaxQDA to produce codes for me without me going record by record?

Dear fsahakian,

it is possible to use the lexical search to find specific entries in the table. It is then possible to create a new code and autocode the whole cell with the code. Would this help you? If not: Could you be a bit more specific and maybe give an example what you are trying to code?
Best regards on behalf of the MAXQDA team,
