IDnumber


The IDnumber is a label that can be inserted in the coding line as a identifier of subjects (e.g. in the case of answers to open-ended questions) or of context units in which the corpus to be imported is subdivided (see Corpus Preparation).

In T-LAB, each time that the "IDnumber" label is used, it must be followed by a low dash ("_") and by a progressive number of max 5 digits (see the following example).

* * * * *IDNUMBER_0001 *AGE_ADUL *SEX_FEM *OCC_PROF
This is followed by the text of an answer or document.
……………

Each corpus can include progressive IDnumbers up to a maximum of 30,000 subjects or context units.

N.B.:
The first IDnumber value must be "1" (e.g. IDnumber_00001).
In the case of texts collected by the user which are in MS Excel format, a macro is provided in the T-LAB installation package which automatically transforms them into an encoded corpus which is ready to be imported.
