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 Import / Export tab. 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 and select Excel Export in the ribbon.

Select all options that you want to include. Essential options for a code book are codes and comments. You may also want to include groundedness, density and code groups.
