# Re: st: using estimates coefficients

```Thanks,
The proper way of dealing with sum and products of coefficients across
different model saved by "estimate save" it is to compute the sum
and/or product in each model separately, as for example:

ge x= _b[age]* meanage, where mean age is the mean value of age in my dataset.

this will be done for each of the 7 model. At the end I will sum the
variables obtained across each model stored. I hope I will be able to
save the variables of interest into the same file.
