For to use a LabelLayer you need a proper datasource.

For your purpose I'd suggest OleDbPoint provider or DataTablePoint provider. They both work the same, you have some x- and y-ordinate column and another column for the label.

The OleDbPoint provider can work with any oledb datasource (e.g. an excel sheet, see one of the tilelayer samples of winformsamples project), DataTablePoint provder takes a System.DataTable as source.
