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.

2018 HMDA Peer Data

Added on April 4, 2019

The FFIEC/CFPB recently released the 2018 HMDA peer data to their Modified LAR page. If you would like to look up your data or see other individual institution data you can find it here In years past, RATA has been able to download the data for all institutions, manipulate the data and release it for use in Peer2Peer and DataMine very quickly. The reason we were able to do this was that the data always contained the same fields and they were in the same basic format. This year however, that is not the case. We want to inform our users about what we are seeing with this new data and new format, the challenges we are running into, and the plan(s) we have in place to get you this data as quickly as possible. Phase One and Challenge…
