Two ways I can come up with:

1) use a BIG varchar field on your customer table to store label names like:

the bad: cannot use index when searching a label on this column

2) use a master detail setup, with a 2nd table for your labels having 1
label per row, like:

create table customer_labels (customer_code DataType, label DataType);

than you can use an Index but must do a join (not bad, BTW)
