Presuming that the test statistic is of the positive persuasion, divide the reported p-value in half. E.g.How can i perform a one sided test after a linear regression? after this regression regress y x1 x2 i want to test if the coefficient of x2 is greater than 0

This test would be insig. at 10% level or better as a two-tailed test, but

. di ttail(74,1.36)

.08897949

indicates that a t of this (absolute) magnitude would allow us to test that the coeff is negative with a significance level of 91+%, that is, signif. at ten percent level as a one-tailed test.
