Create Code Sets

With MAXQDA it is possible to store temporary combinations of codes as code sets. This allows you to group the same codes in different ways or to make frequently used codes available for coding. The code sets only contain references to existing codes, so removing a code from a set has no further consequences.

To create a new code set, right-click on the word Set in the “Code System”, then select New Set.

Create a new code set in the “Code System”

After you enter a name for the set, you can drag and drop the desired codes into the new set with the mouse. The codes can also be moved within the set or to another set using the mouse.

Tip: If you activate codes before creating a new code set, MAXQDA places the activated codes directly into the new code set.
