Thanks for the Line Label tip DSIGMAN!!!!
I've been looking for something like this. Being able to display the area dynamically without having to convert to a Parcel is great. My polyligns were overlapping and like an earlier post stated the overlapping Parcels don't play well. Tried the field method but it's to cumbersome to add new labels to other objects.

This could be just what I'm looking for. But, is there a way to keep it from labeling every single line segment in the bpoly? Also, I can not keep the label from including the tag number.

I just label a closed polyline on any one of the segments and the label returns the area. I've configured it for square feet and acres. I used the General Overall Area variable to create it.
I'm not sure what you're getting at with the tag number. In the Label Style Composer, in the Tabel Tag group, I suspect you may have the "Used In" setting set to "Label and Tag Modes" instead of just "tag mode":
I'll try to attach screen shots of the settings I used.
Here is an old (but still good) post using line labels for elevations. At the end, I have an example using a line area label for silt fence.
I've been getting frustrated in C3D 2011/2012 by the fact that some Parcel curve labels have incorrect deltas... Seems to happen most when using large coordinate values, such as ones related to State Plane. I think it's created by a precision error, which causes C3D Parcels to include erroneous extra very tine curve segments (with 0.000 length, but a delta angle) that gets "added" to the value shown in the label. Very disturbing, since it can cause plats to show incorrect delta angles in curves, and the problem is very hard to catch.
Just really confused by how I never had this problem in C3D 2010 and earlier...
