This may be easy.

I am trying to label streets with values from one attribute field but want to exclude the label from those features where [Owner] = 'Multi'. How can I do this? It seems like something I've done before but can't remember.

Thanks.

In the Labels tab, click the Method dropdown and select 'Define classes of features and label each class differently'. Click the SQL Query button and enter [Owner]<>  'Multi'. Make sure to check the box for Label features in this class and you're done.

Thanks for the reply.
I already have my streets broken up into classes and can't use the SQL Query tool to write a statement to do this.

However,

I wrote a function in the Expressions dialog box.

Function FindLabel ([ST_Label], [Owner])
  If  ([OWNER] <> Multi) then
FindLabel = [ST_LABEL]
End If
End Function

This seemed to do what I want. 

Thanks for the reply!
