Subject: Release of CDC NPCR's XMLExchange Plus re-written in Microsoft .NET Framework
We are very pleased to announce that the revised XMLExchange Plus is now available! This version replaces the previous version available on the CDC NPCR Registry Plus website, and the web page has been updated.
XMLExchange Plus is a tool for reading and writing data exchange files formatted according to the NAACCR XML Data Exchange Standard Implementation Guide.
Tasks performed by XMLExchange Plus include:
An enhanced version is planned for Summer 2020 and will include the following features:
For more information about CDC NPCR's XMLExchange Plus, including system requirements and installation instructions, please visit our product website at the following location: https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/npcr/tools/registryplus/xml-exchange-plus.htm
The install contains a PDF version of the XMLExchange Plus Manual that can be accessed from the Help menu in the task bar. The install also contains the NAACCR XML base dictionary for the current version of the NAACCR XML Standard.
Central registries and other data collection entities with a need to create local user dictionaries are encouraged to download the application and to review the process to create user dictionaries. We also encourage central registries to review existing local data items to determine if reporting needs have changed and to begin identifying new local data items to consider for NAACCR v21 implementation. It is requested that customized user dictionaries including all local data items be provided to vendors by September 15, 2020. This will help vendors prepare customized files and software applications and reduce the chance of delay for deployment of v21 software.
ALL issues or support questions should be sent directly to the Helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please share this information with other members of your team, as appropriate.
