  2. Additional steps may be required to fully address the problem documented in SAS Note 45250 DBCS functions are not listed on "New Computed Column" Window

    If you have previously created a computed column using advanced expressions, the file sasexpfunc.xml in the Application Data folder must be deleted, for example

    Windows XP:
    C:\Documents and Settings\<userid>\Application Data\SAS\SharedSettings\4.3\Expressions\<language>\sasexpfunc.xml

    Windows Vista, Windows 7:
    This file must be deleted after applying the hot fix and before attempting to use the advanced expression control again.

    If advanced expressions have never been used to create a computed column, sasexpfunc.xml will not exist in the Application Data folder and applying the hot fix will be sufficient to address this problem.

This completes the installation of hot fix C44026 on Windows.
