Boris,

I don´t know if you want this, however try:

**************begin example******************
sysuse nlsw88, clear
gen ttl_exp2 = ttl_exp^2
gen wage_log = ln(wage)
reg wage_log ttl_exp ttl_exp2 grade

foreach x of varlist ttl_exp ttl_exp2 grade {
	di (exp(_b[`x'])-1)*100
}
***************end example*******************

HTH,

Joao Lima
