In my opinion, arrayjob, or its latest incarnation, arrayjobx, is better suited for the labels. When reading an array, arrayjob[x] expects & as data separator rather than comma, and its easiest to a global search and replace on the data file to manage this.  Then a simple \multido with \uput should allow you to write all the labels efficiently.
