I work in informatics at the Utah Cancer Registry and use SAS frequently so I am very interested in this topic. I will try out the code soon.

We read NAACCR files much more often than we write them, and we very rarely read all the variables in SAS. I think it could be reasonable to create a full mapping file for the community and recommend that they only keep the relevant variables- I can just delete variables from the .map file Fabian provided using Notepad++.
Even though writing from SAS is problematic, so much of our work and analysis goes through SAS that I don’t see us moving away from it for a long time. We would likely want a different tool to convert SAS output to NAACCR XML (like Seer Data Viewer? or something in Python, if its xml packages can make a valid file).
