create anchored labels from input file e.g.(xls dbf txt)

Discussion created by coneal on Jan 5, 2012
What programatic construct in python do I use to place an anchored label. In a nut shell I know I can write a script that extracts from an input file text x ,y.  To what object do I pass such parameters that place an anchored label or text box or whatever.

My workflow will be 1)call script 2)feed the input file 3)labels automatically placed in correct coordinate space and then I manually adjust the labels (with leader anchored to the correct x,y location)

Your thoughts?
