EDITS Software and Metafiles

The majority of registries should have upgraded to NAACCR version 15.0-compliant software. Please select the link appropriate below for the NAACCR Record Layout currently in use at your registry.

NCDB no longer supports the use of GenEDITS Plus version 1.2.8 to pre-edit data prior to submission to the NCDB. All data submissions should be pre-edited using GenEDITS Plus version 4.

Note: Prior to submission to NCDB, GenEDITS Plus should be run on the actual data file to be submitted.
