NorthCon18.exe Record Converter: NAACCR 16 to NAACCR 18
(Second release, version, build date April 5, 2019)

NorthCon18.exe, a freestanding program for Microsoft® Windows®, converts files of cancer registry records from NAACCR 16 to NAACCR 18, which are data formats prescribed by the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR). Input files should conform to NAACCR version 16. Converted output files will contain records in the NAACCR 18 record layout. See the program’s online help for usage instructions.

Note: v16 edits should be run and errors corrected prior to running the conversion.

Release Information

NorthCon18.exe uses a dynamic link library (DLL), nconv180.dll. The setup package available here contains the latest public releases.

  • Nconv180.dll is a programmers’ library that contains several functions to perform record-by-record conversion when called by NorthCon18.exe or other programs. This is the same conversion DLL used by other Registry Plus software.

The setup package contains a description of the application program interface and instructions for running the software.

If you need just the DLLs to perform conversion with a program other than NorthCon18.exe, just copy them from the same directory where you install NorthCon18.exe.
