It _is_ possible, if as Phil indicated, you have (or upgrade to)
Stata/SE or Stata/MP which both have a maximum limit of 32767 variables
in a dataset.

Without knowing what your trying to achieve its difficult to offer any
more advice, but most commands that work on repeated measures and so
forth work with the data in long format so there may be no need to
-reshape- the data.  Although presumably there is a reason why you wish
the data in wide-format.
