REMINDER: Upcoming Cognos Enhancements Release Notes (8/8/2016)

Good afternoon,


Over the weekend of August 8, 2016, the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) will update the Cognos Enterprise Reporting tool with new reports and enhancements to existing reports in response to requests by users.


  • The Monthly Vehicle Registrations Report will be available to provide information about total statewide vehicle registration counts.
  • The Hot Check Status Report will be available to provide information about the hot checks collected in your county.
  • The Administrative Ad-hoc Report will be updated to add the Ownership Evidence Code Description column and to provide access to the archive and inactive registration data.
  • The Fee Collection and Distribution Report will provide the option for breaking down the funds distribution by Fee Types and providing subtotals for each type.
  • The Week To Date Fees and Month To Date Fees Reports will be updated to make the quantity totals match and to collect data corrected from the previous day/week (for example, when a clerk does not close out but a payment is recorded as collected for a transaction made on the previous day.
  • The Funds Remittance Report will be updated to include all information (such as apprehensions) in the print out.
  • The NMVTIS Inquiry Error Report will be updated to include the transaction date details.
  • A change will be made to the reporting database tables to reduce duplicate records and data gaps. This will improve data quality across the transactional reports, such as the Inventory Transaction Report.
  • The Active Current Registration Cube and Registration Transaction Cube will be updated to include the new legislative gross weight ratings.

As a reminder, the information and data available to you in Cognos is based on your business area and the access permissions you have. If the report is not visible and you feel that you should have access, please contact your supervisor.

Best regards,
