This VA data problem appears to have been first introduced in June 2007: the amount of the mortgage
is unreasonably small. As far as we can tell, the other data elements are correct. For example,
number of mortgages attributable to a lender is correct but market share and ranking which are
both based on the amount of the mortgage are incorrect as of June 2007.
We are working with our data source to fix this problem.
Problem corrected April 21, 2008
Market share was not calculated correctly on the MDW100 conventional reports. Market share was overstated.
This was corrected as of the database update March 21, 2008.
Some mortgages in calendar year 2005 and 2006 were classified as Jumbo incorrectly.
This was corrected in the database as soon as it was discovered.
This results when there is no data for the report. Whatever choices were made for the
report (e.g. geographic area, start date, end date, etc.) resulted in a database query
that found nothing meeting that criteria. Rather than returning a message such as
"no records found", this new reporting facility for PDFs returns an ugly error message.
We are working on a better solution to this issue.
Click the "back" button on your browser and examine the parameters for the report closely.
Often this is simply a matter of an invalid date range or a date range for which there is
simply no data. Try changing the parameters and requesting another report. Another
technique you can use is to try the same parameters but click the "Create report (HTML)"
button. If the HTML style report returns "no records found" then there are in fact no
records found for that set of parameters.
