Hi Monica,

Thank you so much for finding this! I did a comparison of Chapter 7 (record layout) that is on the NAACCR website with an export of the Layout that is in v18C metafile and found the following:

v18C layout has 9 fields that are NOT on the Chapter 7 layout:
(start position 1647, same as NPCR specific field) EDP MDE Link
(start position 1648) EDP MDE Link Date
(start position 1656) Height
(start position 1658) Weight
(start position 1661) Tobacco Use Cigarettes
(start position 1662) Tobacco Use Other Smoke
(start position 1663) Tobacco Use Smokeless
(start position 1664) Tobacco Use NOS
(start position 1665) Source Comorbidity

Not accounting for the above, there are 6 “pairs” of swapped fields:
State at DX Geocode 2000
GeoLocationID – 2000
State at DX Geocode 2010
GeoLocationID – 2010
State at DX Geocode 2020
GeoLocationID – 2020
Number of Examined Para-Aortic Nodes
Number of Positive Pelvic Nodes
Subsq RX 2nd Course Surg
Subsq RX 2nd Course Codes
Subsq RX 3rd Course Surg
Subsq RX 3rd Course Codes

See attached screenshot and Excel spreadsheet – green columns are from chapter 7, I did a check each for position, length, item#, and name.
