Saving Label Expressions

Using the database querying label expressions I wrote about on Thursday, I got to learn a new "feature" of ArcGIS today: Disappearing label expressions on modification of a definition query

That's right, spend five minutes building a database query into your label expression, get it working perfectly and then to celebrate try limiting it with a definition query. Bam! No more label expression. Ain't ArcGIS beautiful?

In dealing with this "feature", I discovered ArcGIS has the ability to Save and Load label expressions.

I'm quickly developing a catalog of label expressions.
