Customize a standard MFC popup panel?

When the Document has been changed and the user wants to exit the application, a popup comes up, saying something like: "Save Changes to XXX?" with Yes/No footers.

My problem is that the Document filename ("XXX" in example above) is an "internal" name which I want to hide from the user -- rather, I want to put my own informative string in there.  Its like I maintain a "user name" for my document files.  Hence, I want the pop-p to say "Save Changes to My_Cool_Name?"

How can I customize MFC's behaviour to get this?  A code example and/or explicit directions would be great...

Thanks!

CDocument::SaveModified
virtual BOOL SaveModified( );

Return Value

Nonzero if it is safe to continue and close the document; 0 if the document should not be closed.

Remarks

Called by the framework before a modified document is to be closed. The default implementation of this function displays a message box asking the user whether to save the changes to the document, if any have been made. Override this function if your program requires a different prompting procedure. This is an advanced overridable.
