To see what the coefficient is named, after running an estimation command like regress or suest type:

"command", coefleg

sysuse auto
reg price mpg
est store mpg
reg price weight
est store weight
suest mpg weight
suest, coefleg
test  _b[mpg_mean:_cons] = _b[weight_mean:_cons]

suest uses the all data available for the particular model. sureg uses all data available across models.

If you have lots of missing data then read-up on the command -sem- with -method(mlmv). You will do all you want to do with the -sem- command too.
