Default interpreting gene/transcript names from UCSC table browser human all_mrna

We are hoping to do a comparison of samples using tophat/cufflinks and a GTF file we got from the UCSC table browser (all human mRNAs).

Does anybody have any idea how we can convert the accession # / Codenames for these transcripts into something more meaningful (like: gene_name-exon_#). As it is we get the accession # for the transcript/exon but for a large number of transcripts this is not easy address and so it would be nice if we could use a script to convert them to something more immediately useful.
