I'm displaying several point shapefiles. I want them all labeled with the field "ident" which is a 3 digit number starting at 001. Two of the three shapefiles show the labels correctly but the 3rd one shows a double label for each point. Instead of just saying "027" it says "027027". In the Layer properties window, I tried unchecking the box that says "Label features in this layer" but this removes the labels completely, then when I recheck "Label features" in the menu that comes when I right click the layer in the table of contents, the double layers re-appear.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
