KeyWords > creating a database


To build a key words database, you will need a set of key word lists. For a decent sized database, it is preferable to build it like this:

1. Make a batch of word lists.

2. Use this to make a batch of keyword lists. Set "faster minimal processing" on as in this shot, so as to not waste time computing plots etc.




3. Now, in KeyWords, choose New | Database.


This enables you to choose the whole set of key word files.

Note that making a database means that only positive key words will be retained.


In the Controller KeyWords settings you can make other choices:


minimum frequency for database

If you set this to 2 you will only use for the database any KWs which appear in 2 or more texts


min. KWs per text

If this is set to 10, any KW results files which ended up with very few KWs will be ignored.
