What is the system macro variable f

What is the system macro variable for error detection in SAS v6.12 for Windows.  
E.g.: To detect whether Proc upload procedure is success or failed.  Thanks.

RE: What is the system macro variable f

The automatic macro variable is SYSERR as in following example:

%macro PROCESS;
data eric;set kenny;
%if &syserr=4 then %let warn_rc=YES;
%else %if &syserr ^= 0 %then error_rc=YES;
proc sort data = eric;by date age;run;
%if &syserr=4 then %let warn_rc=YES;
%else %if &syserr ^= 0 %then error_rc=YES;
%mend PROCESS;
data _null_;
if symget(`warn_rc')='YES' then
put `A warning has occurred ';
else if symget(`error_rc') ='YES' then put
`An error has occurred';
