NAACCR v12 Microsoft Access Translation Tool
Similar to the SAS tool above, the IT Committee presents a product written for Microsoft
Access. We thank David O’Brien at the Alaska Cancer Registry for providing the tool, and all the NAACCR
members who have tested and given feedback. Users familiar with Access will be able to import a
NAACCR v12 file, which would then be available as a standard Access table. Once in a table format,
queries can be written to select a subset of data items that could be transferred to Excel for additional
analysis. Records in the table can be reviewed for quality control (QC), modified, and then exported back
out again as a NAACCR v12 file. Anyone with questions about this tool should contact David O’Brien at the
Alaska Cancer Registry at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or thoughts.
