Hi Lois,

I think it depends on how much you expect from a package.

There are a few Free and Open Source software around:

- WeftQDA http://www.pressure.to/qda/
Basic, but it does the essential code-retrieving (in a grounded theory
fashion) and manipulates both TXT and PDF format

- RQDA http://rqda.r-forge.r-project.org/
Works on top of GNU R and so, while it does code-retrieving it might
be used to integrate Qualitative with statistics

(for lInux and Mac), is an Online Qualitative Research Software

there are others anyways around...you should try to google them.
