    Question about importing memos



    Heather - you can also just drag and drop the text from Word into the
    upper pane of the memo manager and the memo gets created - saves a step.

    Question about importing memos



    Hi,

    Two options:

    1. Create a new memo title in the Memo manager. Then copy and paste the
    text of the word document (or .rtf) into the comment area of the Memo
    manager, or

    2. Create a new memo title in the Memo manager. Drag and drop (or copy and
    paste) the .doc file name (from Windows Explorer) into the comment area of
    the Memo manager. A MS Word icon will appear in the comment area. Clicking
    on the icon will open up the file in Word.

    Cheers,
    Heather

    Question about importing memos


    Content-Disposition: inline

    To see if there was an even simpler way, I dragged text onto the memo
    part of the toolbar while memo manager was closed. The "+" sign shows
    up, and the area is highlighted with a dashed box.

    Release the mouse to drop the text, and that opens an apparently blank
    memo. Click the "x" to close it (without saving), and it creates a new
    memo with the text, and the date as the title. Odd, but cool.

    When you drop and drag as Nick suggest below, the title is drawn from
    the first few words in the text -- which may be a preferred way to
    automatically title your memos.

    Question about importing memos


    Greetings,

    My apologies for asking what may be a well-documented issue. I have
    attempted to log into the mailing list archives to sort out this problem
    for myself, but find that the 'http://www.listserv.gmd.de/archives/ATLAS-
    TI.html' link is not operating.



    I have many memos written and saved in MS-Word .doc and .rtf formats, and
    also in simple ASCII .txt format.

    I would like to import these into Atlas-ti, but find that the Memo
    Manager's 'Miscellaneous'/'Import memos (XML)' function accepts only XML
    format.

    I thought I could save my memos in XML through MS-Word and then import them
    into Atlas-ti, but I receive an error message in Atlas-ti (Incompatible
    format: mso) when I do so.

    How may I accomplish this process of creating compatible XML files from my
    existing memos so I can import them.

    Sincerely,

    _don winiecki

    Thank you Heather and Nick,

    I wonder also how the XML import functionality may be utilized? What
    software's XML formatting will Atlas.ti recognize?
