Developing a Central Registry Edits Metafile has been posted to the NAACCR Edits page (see Manuals and Training Videos at the bottom of the page). The manual was developed by the NAACCR Edits WG to assist central registries with developing and updating a central registry specific edits metafile.
NOTE: This manual does not accommodate the XML related changes within edit processing. Anticipated changes may affect the properties of data fields and the layout structure within EditWriter 5, for both the standard NAACCR metafile and customized edit objects developed by central registries. An addendum to the manual will be released when information becomes available and any changes to EditWriter 5 procedures are developed.
