Creating, Editing, Deleting and Moving Codes and Categories

The main function of QDA Miner is to assign codes to selected text segments and then analyze these codes. Available codes associated with a project are located in the CODES window in the lower left corner of the application workspace. Codes are grouped into categories. The list of available codes, known as the codebook, is displayed as a tree structure, in which categories are the nodes under which associated codes can be found. You can expand a category to view all associated codes or close it by clicking the plus or minus sign located to the left of the category name. When a new project is created, this window is empty. This video of QDA Miner qualitative analysis tool shows how to create and edit codes and structure your codebook using categories.
