Custom WO names in SD4.5 SP17

I'm looking to configure the names on Work Orders to dynamically append the name of the parent change to it. Example:

Change template would have 2 work orders:

Person 1 Change Approval -
Implementation -

then when Change X is created based on that template, it would generate the appropriate WO names:

Person 1 Change Approval - Change X
Implementation - Change X

Is there any way to do this in 4.5 SP17

Hi there,
By "name" do you mean the description field?

If so a DB rule like the following should work:
when WO created or modified
condition; description(*) is NOT empty
action data update
description = Concatenate change;description with WO description with spaces as required.

Hope this helps
