Subject   st: comparing coefficients using suest (same sample, same DV)

Dear statalisters,

I estimate two regressions using the same sample:

(1)	Y=b1x1+e1
(2) 	Y=b1x1+b2x2+e2

and would like to test the difference in b1 across the two models. I think
that suest should work:

reg eq1
est store one
reg eq2
est store two
suest one two

However, most of the applications of suest I find are comparing
coefficients across different samples or different dependent variables.
The stata handbook also does not provide an example using the sample
sample and the same Y. So, I wanted to see if anyone sees a problem using
suest for this purpose.

Thank you!
