How do I do this?
Columns - Sitecode Acres
271730-001 .75 271730-002 .50
I'm trying to label objects by multiplying the Acres column by "2.5". As an example using first row from above:
????(Acres*2.5, ??) should label as "1.875"

In MapInfo Professional you can easily setup a label expression in stead of a fixed column.
Pick the text Expression from the "Label with" dropdown list. In the Expression dialog enter your expressions, in this case:
ACRES * 2.5
Hit OK to the Expression dialog and now you have specified a label expression. If you have turned on Autolabel for the layer you should see the result in the map
