2018 Peer Data (Classic format) Is Ready for Download from Support Site

Added on September 6, 2019

The much anticipated 2018 HMDA Peer data was finally released by the CFPB last Friday. We have finished converting the data and retro-fitting it back to the older peer format which should satisfy 98% of your Peer Analysis needs. We would have had it done yesterday, but there was a pesky storm named Dorian knocking on our door earlier this week. Anyway, you can download the peer data file (PEERHMDA18.RZ) to be used in Comply from our support site (support.rataassociates.com). Once downloaded you can import the data into Comply using the Import System Data option on the Data Manager ribbon. Once the data is imported, if you want to use it in DataMine you will need to Sync Data before running any Excel Pivot tables. You will also want to create new Peer groups and possibly Peer Reporting…

Update on Hurricane Dorian

Added on September 4, 2019

As we are sure you have all seen on the news, hurricane Dorian gave Florida quite a scare but in the end turned just in the nick of time. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.  Because the storm stayed off shore and the impacts of the wind were negligible we have been able to come into the office pretty much as usual over the last two days.  The storm has passed us and central Florida is now officially out of danger of the storm.  RATA Associates is now back to full business as usual.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.   The forecast track for major Hurricane Dorian is showing that the eye will pass very close, if not directly over, the RATA facility in Longwood, FL. While our building is built to hurricane standards and we have a robust…

2018 Peer Update

Added on August 30, 2019

The CFPB/FFIEC has just released the 2018 National HMDA data set and transmittal info we were all waiting for at 3:00pm EST 8/30/2019. As mentioned in the earlier Start Page article below, the data will be converted and released in two flavors. The first and most useful to all clients will be the Peer (classic) format which will basically take the 2018 data and create the older 2017 format and data fields. Since the data will be exactly the same as years past, it will work with your current Comply versions with no changes as well as the peer website. Since this data will take a little massaging to get into that format and because of the pending hurricane bearing down on Central Florida, we are hoping to release the data by next Thursday, Sept. 5th. For those needing or wanting to look at…

Comply 18.22 Release is Now Available for Download

Added on July 22, 2019

The Comply 18.22 update is now on our support site and available for download. Our last two updates (18.21 and 18.22) contain only edit check changes. Version 18.22 includes the 4 edit changes that were released by the CFPB last week in their July 2019 FIG. The V644.2 and V648.2 edits were updated to allow code 3 for Sex of Applicant or Borrower/Co-Applicant or Co-Borrower Collected on the Basis of Visual Observation or Surname. The V696.2 and V699.1 edits were updated by removing code 17 for the five Automated Underwriting System Results fields. This update is not critical but will ensure that your edits are flagging correctly. If you'd rather wait, rest assured that these changes and much more will be available in our Fall Comply 19.00 submission release. If you are on a version prior…

Install Issue and Remedy for clients receiving 'Error opening data source'

Added on May 13, 2019

When trying to install or update Comply, some customers have been getting a message "Error opening data source". This can be caused by a missing or corrupted installation of SQL Server Native Client on the user's machine. Prior to Comply v18.2, the Comply installation would use the operating system's version of OLE DB to connect to the database. However, Microsoft has deprecated these database drivers, which don't support later versions of TLS. With most customers disabling TLS 1.0, starting with v18.2 of Comply, the installation was updated to rely on a different database driver. Since these database drivers are no longer part of the operating system, Comply installs will install the SQL Server Native Client files when they are not present on a user's machine. However, there have been a…
