comment Callout Annotation in MapInfo
For regions, labels can be moved outside and have a label line added automatically. You can use this knowledge by buffering your points and in this way have the labels moved outside automatically

comment Display the content of a sheet of an excel file by mapbasic
And how should the user interact with this? Would he select one or multiple values? From several rows? And what should the tool do if he has selected a value? Try to explain a bit more about the purpose as that also might influence on the solution proposed. Add the details to the question and not as comments

@T_Bacon, you should write your comment as a question. Should be a workable solution

comment How to make a column as a layer of label?
You can set the layer to display an invisible symbol. In that way you can only see the label and not the point. If you open the MapBasic window (via Options) and then do it via the Layer Control you'll see the MapBasic statement to use in the MapBasic Window

comment How to make a column as a layer of label?
Isn't that what I answered above? You can add your table to as many maps as you want. Once you have added your table to a map, it's seen as a layer in the map

comment How to make a column as a layer of label?
You can turn on Autolabels for your layer and specify to use the Name column for yur labelling. You specify this via the Layer Properties dialog - double click on the layer in the Layer Control to get to this dialog.

comment How to select nth row in mapbasic?
Fetch will only set the cursor at that position and not "select" the actual row. But it does depend on what he wants to do with the row afterwards

comment Control drawing order of points from DBMS in MapInfo?
Yeah, running a query on a live table in MapInfo will make MapInfo download all the data into your DBMS table. Performance wise it would be better to use a linked table if you know you will be running queries on the DBMS table
