If you are using ICE, the _mj represents your imputed data sets (ex.
logit var1 var2 if _mj==1, logit var1 var2 if _mj==2, etc.).  Is "_mj"
listed in
your variable list in STATA?  If not, you may need to reimpute your
original data.  In the cases I have encountered, ICE/micombine will
still work with "non" micombine commands -- in this case you would get
a warning message in red that your command is not valid to use with
micombine.  Even with this error, STATA "pushes" the analysis through
-- warning the results may not be valid.

Because you are getting an "_mj not found" error that leads me to
believe something is wrong with the imputed data set.  Possibly check
your code and re-run ICE.

If the _mj is there, I'm afraid that's where my advice stops and
someone else will need to step in with additional advice.
