Oops....I thought Zhi wanted to test a constraint.....though, after the -test- command I give you if you add - , coef- you'll get the same coefficients as in the constrained regression that Kit demonstrated, i.e.,

test (x1=4) (x2=19) (x3=2) (x4=8) , coef

Out of interest Zhi, what do you intend to do next with your model?

The constrained coefficient for each independent variable is a
constant value. When I calculate each of these values from previous
regression should I save them as a new variable with a single value
for all the observations or as a vector?
How to use "constraint define" to set the constraints for the
coefficient of each independent?

sysuse auto,clear
reg price mpg weight turn displacement length gear_ratio
constraint def 1 weight = 4
constraint def 2 turn = 250
constraint def 3 displacement = 11
constraint def 4 length = -75
cnsreg price mpg weight turn displacement length gear_ratio, c(1/4)
