I am looking for some guidance on how to add the wald test for difference between coefficients from two models to a table generated using esttab. I do the following:

 sysuse auto
(1978 Automobile Data)

. eststo R1: quietly regress price weight mpg

. eststo R2: quietly regress price weight mpg foreign

. esttab

                      (1)             (2)   
                    price           price   
weight              1.747**         3.465***
                   (2.72)          (5.49)   

mpg                -49.51           21.85   
                  (-0.57)          (0.29)   

foreign                            3673.1***

_cons              1946.1         -5853.7   
                   (0.54)         (-1.73)   
N                      74              74   
t statistics in parentheses
* p<0.05, ** p<0.01, *** p<0.001

Now I want to test if the weight coefficient in model 1 is statistically different from that in Model 2. In my own program the following works:

suest R1 R2
test [R1]weight=[R2]weight

But here I get the following error:
equation [R1] not found

So my first question is how to conduct the above test. Second is how to add the p value from the above Wald test to the table generated using esttab? 

Any help will be much appreciated. Many thanks!
