Word checkbox information not preserved when importing docs?

07.07.2015, 16:18

Hi there,

When importing Word documents with checkbox fields into MaxQDA it seems that the checkbox ticks are not preserved once imported. Is this normal? I can work around it by converting the Word docs to PDF files, but since I'm going to be analysing quite a few documents I'd rather not have to do this. Any advice much appreciated. Thanks!

Dear Christian S,

yes, this a normal behavior. Such checks and data is not stored in the rtf-text material and can therefore not be imported into MAXQDA. The only option we see is your suggestion with the conversion to PDF.
Maybe it could also be possible to export the data to a spreadsheet format? Then, it might be possible to import such data as document variables into MAXQDA.
Best regards on behalf of the MAXQDA team,

Hi,

Thanks for the swift reply. I guess I'll have to find a work-around then.
