Yeas, the different placement of the -preserve- and -restore-  works to.

Thank you Nick and all others for your input on this.

The -preserve- and -restore- look misplaced now that you draw attention to them. 

levelsof  atc  ,  local(cat) 

foreach  k  of local cat {
	use "G:\ATC-dataset_`k'"  ,  clear 
	rename (*) (`k'_*) 
	rename `k'_idnr idnr
	save, replace

YEAS, this solves it! THANKS.

 However I now get another error message  "already preserved".
