How do you get appropriate labels [only] to show on relevant data driven page?

Even after establishing a Page Definition Query, I cannot get labels specific to a data driven page to show ONLY on that page. Attempting to use a Data Driven Display Expression, but label still appears on all pages instead of just the one relevant to it.

Hi Anna,

I haven't used Data Driven Pages in a while, but from what I recall, a Page Definition Query can be applied to layers other than the DDP Index Layer, but not to the Index Layer itself. Are the labels you're trying to hide associated with features on the Index Layer?

Thanks for response.

No, they are not associated with the Index Layer.

Hmm, ok. I just tried a simple test, and was able to use a Page Definition Query to just the relevant features/labels for a given page. I basically followed the instructions provided here:

Using Page Definition Queries—Help | ArcGIS Desktop 

... with a simple Map with a basemap, a USA states (polygon) layer as my Index Layer, and a cities (points) layer with labels turned on.

Maybe try following those instructions and see if the labeling issue is reproducible with a simple setup like that?
