Use a classification sheet to see attribute values


If you add classifications to your project and use them to classify your nodes or sources, you can use a classification sheet to:

  • See all the items in a selected classification—for example, see all the nodes classified as Person

  • Add or edit the attribute values for all items in a selected classification—for example, the age, sex and occupation of all interview respondents.

What do you want to do?


Open a classification sheet

  1. On the Explore tab, in the Classification Sheets group, click Source Classification Sheets or Node Classification Sheets.

  1. Click the classification sheet that you want to open.

NOTE  You can also open a selected classification sheet from List View—on the Home tab, in the Item group, click Open.
