Additional Information

Known Limit that Labeling using an expression is not supported,


ArcGIS for Windows Mobile supports labeling on a layer in ArcMap and annotation that is stored in a geodatabase. However, it is recommended that annotation are used for text instead of labeling, since labeling on-the-fly consumes battery. See Help documents for other limitations in using labels and annotation with ArcGIS for Windows Mobile projects.
