EDITS Software and Metafiles

The software and edits linked from this page apply to all data submitted to NCDB or RQRS during calendar year 2015.

Early in 2015, software providers will begin distributing a registry software upgrade compliant with NAACCR version 15.0. The upgrade will convert registry data from NAACCR layout 14.0 to 15.0 (it may be called 140 and 150). At this time, edit metafiles for submissions in v15.0 are not yet available.

There are two versions of the GenEDITS Plus software currently available: the all-new GenEDITS Plus 4 and the existing GenEDITS Plus version 1.2.8. If you already have GenEDITS version 1.2.8 installed, you are not required to upgrade the software to GenEDITS Plus 4—you can upgrade if you prefer. However, you may already have the updated software installed. You will need to select the applicable link below depending on which version of GenEDITS Plus you plan to use for your submission.

Software and NCDB Edit Metafile for Use with GenEDITS Plus version 1.2.8, record layout v14.0

If your registry has GenEDITS Plus version 1.2.8 installed you may continue to use this same version of GenEDITS Plus. To check if you have GenEDITS Plus version 1.2.8 installed, launch the program to check the version number in the upper left-hand corner of the program.  If you have an earlier version of GenEDITS Plus installed, please upgrade to GenEDITS Plus 4.
