NAACCR Online Education
Sassafras! Reading and Writing NAACCR V21 XML using SAS
Recorded On: 03/24/2021
NAACCR has for many years provided SAS tools to the cancer surveillance community for reading and writing NAACCR-standard flat files. With the switch in V21 to only XML format, the toolset needed an upgrade. This webinar will demonstrate how to read and write NAACCR V21 XML files using SAS. It is highly recommended for registry staff and others in the cancer surveillance community who want to interface with NAACCR V21 XML files using SAS.
