Relationen als Adjazenzmatrix exportieren

MAXQDA exports the frequencies of relations as follows:

  • The matrix is exported as if all codes were expanded.
  • Codes, that are displayed only in the columns are added to the rows and vice versa. This creates a symmetrical matrix.
  • If the name of a code occurs more than once, the name of the parent code is prefixed to ensure uniqueness of the code names.
