NVivo difficulties

I'm trying to find out how to use this NVivo to record and code my thoughts on the literature review. It should be a good tool. After all, a literature review is a qualitative analysis, isn't it? But I can't work out the best way to use externals, create memos, link to the Word documents I already have written for reviews.

And there isn't an NVivo course till September, which is one I can't go on because it's the day after the BAM conference. So I have to wait longer to get the training, and carry on self-training - no problem because I've taught myself lots of technical programs for years.

Asher, thank you for your comment. What's a methodology driven approach mean?
Your CV is impressive. But as you are in Washington and I am in the UK, meeting won't be possible, I'm afraid. :(
