st: xtivreg2 with factor variables

Dear all,
I have an unbalanced panel of macroeconomic data on 35 countries over 17 years.
My analysis shows that time effects are jointly significant, as well
as indicated first order autocorrelation.
 therefore ran  the following command:
. xtivreg2 log_ss dem gini gdp  i.year,  fe cluster(country_code year) bw(1)

I  got the following error:  factor variables not allowed
Shell I specify each year dummy (excl. one) or is there a different
problem here?
Any advise will be appreciated!
