    Coding the quotations


    Dear Arend,

    I recommend using a network view to "sort" the examples of a selected broad
    code into piles. This will help you define your subcodes in relation to each
    other. To do this simply right click on one of the codes and select "open
    network." You may want to increase the size of the network window. Right
    click on the code in the network window and select "import neighbors." The
    quotations currently linked to that code will appear like a deck of cards
    that has been fanned out. Now simply double click on the first quotation to
    read it and then drag it around to one side of the network. Open the next
    and repeat this process and you will find ways to organize the quotations
    inductively into several piles. You can then create a new subcode in the
    code list. Drag that into the network and link it to its pile. Hope this
    helps.

    Hello
    Do you need to make a different PD or can you just code on the ones that
    are already coded? If so, you can simply open your code list and double
    click on any code to see all the quotes - you can use your Query Tool
    the same way.

    Open the Query Tool, double click on the code you want and everything
    coded to this will appear in the results window. Click on any quote to
    bring it up and you can then code it further.

    At any time, you can make a family of one or more codes and filter your
    HU so you are only working on items in that family (if you wish to see
    only things coded to CODE A for example).

    Hope this helps
    Cheryl

    Greetings. I have been using the Atlas-ti software in my dissertation
    work
    and have enjoyed the posts on this list.

    I have coded my primary documents using broad categories and now I
    wonder if
    there is a way to pull out just those quotes for one code for more
    detailed
    coding? I suppose I could output to a text document and then make that a
    primary document, but it seems there should be another way ...
