Automatic System macro variable SYSERRORTEXT not resolved

Hello!!!

In my code, I want to capture the last Error/Warning message printed in the log file which is generated during Data Step processing.

For the same, I am trying to use the system automatic macro variables SYSERRORTEXT and SYSWARNINGTEXT. But unfortunately these automatic macro variables are not getting resolved and giving following error Smiley Sad

WARNING: Apparent symbolic reference SYSERRORTEXT not resolved.
WARNING: Apparent symbolic reference SYSWARNINGTEXT not resolved.

I suspect these variables work only for SAS 9.2 and higher versions. I am using BASE SAS 9.1.3 Service Pack 4 version software where I am unable to use these macro variables.

Please suggest is there any other way to capture the error/warning text generated during Data Step processing.

Any help regarding above issue would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
