try using -fvset-, e.g.,

fvset base 1 state
fvset base 1 year

this might be relevant:

Hello,

I'm running a bunch of regressions, storing the results, and trying to
output the results using esttab. Whenever I run my regressions and include
state or year dummies, esttab gives me the error "too many base levels
specified" (even though the dummies aren't included in the table).  If I run
the regressions without the state&  year dummies, there's no problem. Is
there any way to fix this, so that I can include the dummies in my analysis
and still get the table I want?

Thank you!

here is some of my code:
eststo clear
eststo y1Reg: reg y1 law i.state i.year, cluster(state)
eststo y2Reg: reg y2 law i.state i.year, cluster(state)
eststo y3Reg: reg y3 law i.state i.year, cluster(state)

esttab y* using myfile.tex, replace b(a2) se ///
            dropped(---) star(* 0.1 ** 0.05 *** 0.01) ///
            mlabels(, none) label nogaps nonotes noobs ///
            noconstant keep(law) ///
            nolines delimit(&) end(\\) posthead("\addlinespace") ///
            nonumbers  ///
            varwidth(46) modelwidth(21) ///
            noisily


too many base levels specified
