Thanks Daniel
I have taken a look at the mi version in Stata 12 and it looks like
that might solve my problem.

I do not have access to Stata at the moment, so I cannot replicate your problem. However, I would like to point out two things.

If you are using Stata 12, there is no need to use -ice- since Stata's
-mi- supports imputationa via chained-equations in the current version. (It is based on the work of Royston). Further, if you use Stata's -mi-, you do not need to specify conditions, as Stata will only impute "hard missings" (i.e. sysmiss). Create soft missing values (i.e. one of .a, .b, ..., .z) in your original dataset according to your conditions, as these values will not be imputed.
