(3) Status coded to Complete Date
(4) Exported Date

Bug

After importing file, abstract display has a lot of blank space after the last field "Follow-Up Source Central" in the System Fields section and no other fields in that section are displaying. Then there are 2 fields at the very bottom of the abstract that don't seem to belong there: Pathlab ID and Path Report Number. These fields don't show up in the Manage Abstract Display window, so not clear why they are there.

Update Reprocessing of 2018/8th Edition Files
Any files with diagnosis year of 2018 or later that were imported into eMaRC using version 6.0 were mapped to NAACCR Version 16.0 Record Layout. When upgrading eMaRC to version 7.0, the updater will automatically reprocess these files.
