proc mi Floating "Point Zero Divide"

I am getting some weird error while running proc mi :"ERROR: Floating Point Zero Divide"

proc mi data=WITHSIC2 seed=7545417 nimpute=5 out=WORK.SIC2imputefive;
class SIC2_CODE;
monotone reg( &varlist4)

discrim( SIC2_CODE= &varlist4/ details);
var &varlist4 SIC2_CODE;
run;


Did anyone run into a similar issue?


Error Message:

Re: proc mi Floating "Point Zero Divide"

How did you fix it???????????????????????????

There doesn't seem to be much help for the PROC MI instance of this error. I did notice a page that says when this error is encountered in another context that the solution is to apply the following hotfix:

http://ftp.sas.com/techsup/download/hotfix/HF2/B25.html#42783

I myself am on a managed terminal so I can't apply it at this moment but I am trying to get through the red tape to do so.
