As promised, we are releasing a special beta version of Comply 17, so that institutions can get a handle on where RATA is at with the changes and begin testing imports with the new data elements, if they are at that point. For those of you that just need to make sure RATA is on top of the changes, we have included a video that illustrates the new fields and imports to show you that it is implemented and works great. We have gone from 40 fields to 110 submittable fields so data collection will be a fun process. For those of you not familiar with the field changes and values, please download the 2018 File Specifications at https://www.consumerfinance.gov/data-research/hmda/static/for-filers/2018/2018-HMDA-FIG.pdf.
The government has still not released the 2018 Edit Checks so really all there is to test is that the fields are available in Comply and that you can import. Hopefully this video will illustrate both to your satisfaction.
If you want to download a version to test on a development server, there is a full version of Comply 17 available. Do not try to update your live system with this version. It must be installed on a test server.
If you are planning to download the beta version, be sure to review this document:

In addition to the 2018 HMDA changes, we're also working on updates to other functionality and general fixes as usual. We're anticipating the release of Comply 17 to be in late August or early September.
Please let us know if you have any comments, questions or concerns. Thanks!
