You should also be able to use the Summary Statistics Tool to summarize by Name (Statisic Type: FIRST) and Date (Statistic type: MAX or whatever is appropriate).  You can take the result and join it to your table and use the date field as your labeling field.

Hi Everyone,
I have a label problem in ArcMap that I can't figure out and would like your help.
We have a our permits displayed in a point layer.  Some permits are issued annually and are located at the very same spot, so they have 16 to 20 points on top of each other. Permits are number sequentially so they could be sorted.
Here's my problem, I want the most recent permit number to be either the top point and therefore that label will be the one displayed, or tell ArcMap to label using the first or last record depending on the sort to use as the label.
Script?  Maplex? Any other method? All suggestions considered.

Thanks,
Gary Cook GISP

Gary,
Try creating a new label class for your label that only included the most current data. Then make sure to not label the default label class.
