That macro has not been available on my versions of Stata: 8, 9, 10,
11, and 12(*). So I guess this is either platform specific, I use
Windows, or you used to create that macro automatically at startup
using a profile.do file. However, much of these system macros have
been replaced by what is left behind in c(). A complete list can be
found in -help creturn-.

Hope this helps,
Maarten

(*) I leave those old versions on my computer to check whether
programs I write that should work on older version, really work on
those older version
