```Dear Ben:

Sorry again but could you disregard my previous e-mail. I simply had forgotten one variable. I try again.

Herv�, I would do something like the following (this

sysuse auto
regress price mpg weight foreign
estimates store model1
tempname b
matrix `b' = e(b)
matrix `b'[1,1] = -999   //neg. sign for mpg
matrix `b'[1,2] = +999   //pos. sign for weight
matrix `b'[1,3] = .z     //no sign for foreign
matrix `b'[1,4] = 998    //? for _cons
eret2 matrix signs = `b'
estimates store pred
estout pred model1, cells("signs(pat(1 0)) b(pat(0))") ///
substitute(-999 - 999 + 998 ?)
