Surveys and datasets

A dataset contains structured data arranged in rows and columns. Datasets are created by importing data, and cannot be edited inside NVivo.

You can create datasets by importing:

  • Microsoft Excel spreadsheets
  • Text files containing comma or tab-separated values
  • NCapture files containing data collected from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
  • Responses from SurveyMonkey and Qualtrics
