Thanks, Stephen. It’s not as flashy, but it does have a lot of the basic functions I was looking for. I might have to really play with it, but I was looking something that was more dynamic… something I can […]

evan misshula replied to the forum topic Preferred software package for analyzing qualitative data? in the group Internet Research Team 9 months, 3 weeks ago
Sorry, I did not see this earlier. You should use RQDA which allows you to do everything that MAXQDA does but also stores the tags in a sqlite database. You can then run Structured Query Language (SQL) against […]
