Creating a Codebook

If you want to create a codebook for the appendix of a report, do not use the Export Codebook option that you find under the main Code menu. The purpose of this option is to transfer codebooks between projects or computers.

The recommended option to create a code book is to use the Excel export option from the Code Manager:

Open the Code Manager. Click on the Export button and select Export as Spreadsheet.

ATLAS.ti exports all columns that are visible in the Code Manager. If you click on a column header in the Code Manager, you can deselect columns that you do not want to export.

Example Outcome:

Folders and independent codes are listed in the first column, categories in the second column, and subcodes in the third column.
