Creating a project from a list of documents
The easiest method to create a new project and start doing analysis in QDA Miner is by specifying a list of existing documents or images and importing them into a new project. Using this method creates a simple project with two or three variables: A categorical variable containing the original name of the files from which the data originated, a DOCUMENT variable containing imported documents and/or an IMAGE variable containing imported graphics. All text and graphic files are stored in different cases so, if 10 files have been imported, the project will have 10 cases with two or three variables each. To split long documents into several ones or extract numerical, categorical, or textual information from those documents and store them into additional variables, use the Document Conversion Wizard.
