Conversion Specifications for NAACCR 14
The conversion specifications describe the actions of the conversion program written to convert records in the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR) version 13 standard to the NAACCR version 14 standard.
There is no separate conversion specification document for NAACCR 14. Conversion specifications are included in the implementation guide for the CSv2.5 package [ZIP-68.3MB], which can be downloaded at the Collaborative Stage home page.
Note: The specifications for this conversion assume that no non-standard data (other than data for CDC's CER study) are present in fields designated as reserved in the NAACCR 12.2 records being converted. The standard conversion may not preserve any non-standard data in reserved fields.
This program converts a file of records to the NAACCR version 14 standard data layout. The input file should consist of records conforming to the NAACCR record layout standards for version 13. (For a program to produce NAACCR 13.0 output records from the obsolete versions 12.2, 12.1, 12.0, 10, 9, 8, and 7, please contact your program consultant.)
This utility identifies files of cancer registry abstracts in formats prescribed by NAACCR. It is useful in quickly determining the characteristics of files that are received from an outside source. Recnizer can test for validity of files that may have caused unexplained problems for other software. The DLL that accompanies Recnizer, rpnaaccr.dll, can be used in other software to verify that a file consists of standard NAACCR records to prevent processing of damaged or ill-formatted files.
Dynamic Link Library (DLL) nconv140.dll
This function library contains several functions to perform file conversion or record-by-record conversion when accessed by a program. This is the same DLL used by Northcon140, above, and other Registry Plus software.
