    The NAACCR XML Base Dictionary files for version 21 and 18 have been updated on the NAACCR website ( to fix a bug in the value of the padding attribute for the following items:
    Sentinel Lymph Nodes Examined (Item 834), padding was updated to leftZero
    Sentinel Lymph Nodes Positive (Item 835), padding was updated to leftZero
    Phase I Dose per Fraction (Item 1501), padding was updated to leftZero
    CA 19-9 PreTX Lab Value (Item 3942), padding was updated to leftBlank
    Note that the padding and justification of these items has always been correct in the NAACCR Volume II Data Dictionary, but the XML Base Dictionary files had incorrect values.
