labels in ArcScene

Is it possible to have labels associated with point data used in ArcScene? Have GPS stations as point shape file on airphoto with base elevations mapped to corresponding DEM. Would like to have stations labeled as in ArcMap with labels showing a specific attribute field. Do not find any labeling functions associated with properties of shape files in ArcScene, or even a way to make basic graphic labels within ArcScene other than 3D labels using the 3D graphics toolbar.

Thanks,

Dave

Mapping Center Answer:

There is no way to do what you're describing in ArcScene.  In 9.3 you can produce annotation in ArcMap and then view in ArcGlobe.  For the time-being that's the only available solution.
