The following will get you close.

*-------------------- begin example ---------------
sysuse nlsw88, clear
gen ttl_exp2 = ttl_exp^2
glm wage ttl_exp ttl_exp2 grade, link(log) eform
*--------------------- end example ----------------
(For more on how to use examples I sent to the Statalist, see

Hope this helps,
