Try PROC MODEL. It allows you to explicitly specify parameter
restrictions in almost any form.

Subject: regression w/ nonlinear constraints
Any help would be appreciated. I'm trying to estimate a variation of a
partial-adjustment model that contains nonlinear constraints on some of
The model is:
Yi = A + B1*X1 + B2*X2 + B3*X3 + . . .
For some rather complicated reasons I need to constrain the parameters
A/(1 - B1) = B2/B3
I've done a quick run-through of the SAS manuals and found some material
on linear constraints but nothing on NONLINEAR ones such as these. Any
