Maybe Jonathan was referring to the -help metan- instead of the Stata Press
book?

Dear Jonathan,
Thanks a lot for your response! I have the recently published book 
"Meta-analysis in Stata:...." but could not find the example you 
mention. However, just plugging in the regression coefficients and 
standard errors has worked just fine!
Many thanks,
Miranda
