What is a project file?

Modified on Fri, 5 Jul at 2:54 PM

MAXQDA automatically saves all documents, codes, memos, variables, etc. in a project file. This is similar to Word. MAXQDA is the MS Word program and the project file is a Word file. MAXQDA 24 saves its file on your computer with the extension mx24. 

Where is my data saved? 

The project file is saved locally on your computer. MAXQDA has no access to your data and does not save it. 

How do I find my project file? 

MAXQDA normally saves the project file in the standard documents folder. 

Windows C:\Users\firstname.lastname\Documents\MAXQDA24 

Mac /Users/name/Documents/MAXQDA/MAXQDA24/ 

If you are working in MAXQDA, open "Open project". Here you can see the full path:
