First, you should switch to BASE http://base.secureideas.net.  ACID  
has been dead for at least 5 years.

Second, do you mean that in the signature name field you have a  
number, and not the name of the alert?  Or are you saying that you  
want the description of the rule displayed somewhere?

Please clarify your statement so that we can make a better helpful
