```I think the commands -xi3- and -postgr3- (which can be installed
writing -net install spost9_ado.pkg-) can achieve this, as shown in
the following example, although I'm not sure if this is what you're
looking for

use http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/notes/hsb2, clear
gen mathsq=math^2
* math would be X, ses is the moderator
xi3: reg science mathsq i.ses*math
postgr3 math, by(ses) asis(mathsq _Ise*)

Hope this helps,
