Dear Ben:

I now have a clearer view. It worked with a basic example:

regress y var1 var2 var3.

I refer to a problem I mentioned earlier and which was solved by the second solution you proposed originally (the one with the program prsign, eclass): in my estout output, I want to have the results of two regressions:

regress y var1 var2
regress y var1 var2 var3.

In the predicted signs column, I need to have the three variables var1, var2 and var3, although the first model only uses var1 and var2.

It seems to me that your latest solution (with tempname b) is related to only one model.

Best regards

Hervé

Hervé, I would do something like the following (this 
answers both your questions):

  sysuse auto
  regress price mpg weight foreign
  estimates store model1
  tempname b
  matrix `b' = e(b)
  matrix `b'[1,1] = -999   //neg. sign for mpg
  matrix `b'[1,2] = +999   //pos. sign for weight
  matrix `b'[1,3] = .z     //no sign for foreign
  matrix `b'[1,4] = 998    //? for _cons
  eret2 matrix signs = `b'
  estimates store pred
  estout pred model1, cells("signs(pat(1 0)) b(pat(0))") ///
    substitute(-999 - 999 + 998 ?)
