Hi - yes this is fine - you simply enter the data as the regression coefficient and its standard error from each study. You can find an example in the metan documentation.

Best wishes

Hello,
I am looking into using the meta-analysis commands in Stata but am very
new to this, and would be very grateful for some guidance on the
following...
Is it possible to use metan when the statistics for individual studies
are regression coefficients, rather than mean differences which seems to
be the default?
Many thanks for your help,
Miranda
