Conversion Specifications for NAACCR 16

The conversion specifications Cdc-pdf[PDF-237KB] describe the actions of the conversion program written to convert records in the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR) version 15 standard to the NAACCR version 16 standard.


This program converts a file of records to the NAACCR version 16 standard data layout. The input file should consist of records conforming to the NAACCR record layout standards for version 15. (For a program to produce NAACCR 15.0 output records from older NAACCR versions, 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) nconv160.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 Northcon160, above, and other Registry Plus software.
