Testing a linear constrain in a linear model

I am estimating the following regression using the Proc autoreg procedure:
y = b1 * x1 + b2 * x2 + b3 * x3 + e

How do I test the hypothesis b1+b2+b3=0 in SAS?
Thank you very much for any input!

Re: Testing a linear constrain in a linear model

Did you find a solution?

Its very simple to do a F-test as such.

Just write

test=b1=b2=b3=0

in your test setup. If its not true, you can also rule out that the sum would be significantly different from 0.
