Excel table with codes and the corresponding documents?

11.07.2017, 16:18

Dear MAXQDA Team,

First of all, great software! I use it for my master's thesis and I like the easy handling.
For my master's thesis I need an appendix with the codes and the sources (which are the documents). Is it possible to retrieve the data in MAXQDA as an Excel file? I know that it is possible to retrieve the data and the documents separately. However, I need the codes individually with the corresponding sources. Is that possible?

Thank you! :)

Greetings,

Dear s_dayo,

thanks for the question and your positive feedback, we're happy to hear that :-)

First of all I can tell you that there are really a lot of ways to export coded segments. Question is: How do you want them your appendix?

To get a report with all of the codes and their respective coded segments (+ source information, which is always added afaik), you could simply let MAXQDA do all the work and generate a nice appendix automatically with the "Smart Publisher":

http://www.maxqda.com/help-max12/report ... -publisher

You can also activate codes and export their respective coded segments directly in the "Retrieved Segments"-window (fifth button from the left, blue door with red arrow).

To print out coded segments ordered by document variables, use the "Quote Matrix" (in section "Mixed Methods"):

http://www.maxqda.com/help-max12/mixed- ... ote-matrix

More export options (if you want to export your code system without the coded segments for example) can be found under "MAXQDA > Export..." . You can read more about the whole topic here:

http://www.maxqda.com/max12-tutorial/l-1-export-options

Please note that with all of those export options, you can not only export to excel, but also other formats like html (best overview), or rtf/txt (better for copying in a word document).

I hope this helps! If not, or in case of any other questions, please feel free to contact us again.

Hi Andreas,

Thank for your fast reply. I tried your options but I could not get the result I want. Basically, I just want a plain table with the codes and the documents. I do not need the coded segments.
The quote matrix was already pretty close to what I want but it also prints the coded segments which I do not need. Is there any way to retrieve only codes and the corresponding documents?

Thank you!

Kind regards
