Dear Ignacio

  If you are doing a test like

. regress y a b c
. test a b

I am not aware of anything built into Stata that will formulate this as a one tailed test, given that it is testing an omnibus hypothesis

  Ho: Ba = 0, Bb = 0

But it would seem that you could inspect the direction of the effect yourself and divide the alpha accordingly. But, I think that there are more sophisticated methods that have been published on this (I think Tukey wrote something on this).

I hope this helps,

It seems to be a simple question but I haven't been able to figure it
out yet. I'm trying to perform a simple test for multiple coefficients
(Wald test). Stata provides the test command to do it but it is a two
side one. Is there any code for one tailed test for multiple
