Is your mi data in wide format? If so, each imputation has an extra variable for each imputed or passive variable. You could try doing the imputation in one of the long formats.

Hi all,
I just received an error message that I have too many variables Stata IC
(max number of 2,047). I currently have 260 variables, but 20 imputations
(with over 25,000 observations, but that shouldn't matter). Is that what's
causing the problem? It doesn't seem that this should be the root cause
because I still only have 260 variables. Could it be something else? Thanks
for your assistance!
