The Visual C++ wizards create header files with
#if !defined __a very long identifier___

The identifier is messy and I want to change the name so I can access it easier within my program.
Does changing the identifier have any adverse effect the program or any of the behind the scenes stuff on MFC?

No there are no adverse effects.  The purpose of these longer identifiers is to ensure uniqueness.  In fact, you'll notice that the identifier actually uses a GUID to reach this goal.  Changing the identifiers will cause no problems.  This has been my experience.
