Translation Tools for Volume II
A list of tools which can import and export data in NAACCR Volume II format.
v15 SAS Translation Tool
The code template below can be used by proficient SAS programmers to efficiently and accurately access data in the new V15 format. Code to both read and write ASCII V15 format is provided. Various sections and options are included - users simply comment out sections which are not applicable for their specific needs. Two alternate labeling formats are provided, and the three most often used record types (Incidence, Confidential and Text) are accommodated. Beginning with V14, code is included to handle data elements
which are part of the CDC’s Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) and
Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) projects. As you use the tool, we appreciate any feedback or comments you have. Contact email@example.com with your thoughts.
v13 Microsoft Access Translation Tool
An update to the MS Access tool to accommodate V13 is
included. Users familiar with Access will be able to import a NAACCR v13 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 v13 file. Documentation can be found inside the MSAccess file at
the download link below. Anyone with questions about this tool should contact
David O’Brien at the Alaska Cancer Registry at Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with
questions or thoughts.
