Thanks indeed Marteen it really worked with sureg. However, when I do bootstrapping, it only work with one constraint. Suppose I have more than one constraint (in this case 2), and I tried it this way

bootstrap _b, reps(50) : sureg (price foreign weight length)     
      (mpg foreign weight)(displ foreign weight), constraint(1-2)

but it turned out to a message invalid syntax an error occurred when bootstrap executed sureg.
My last question is , how can I make constraints with inequality.
For eg.
-	if I want to get all _b (coefficients) positive.
-	If I want to make specific equation with negative coefficients. Eg. Negative coefficients for the equation mpg.
In my case I need to restrict the coefficients for the Subsidy equation to negative.
Thanks again.
