Do yourself a favour, and stop using Visual Studio default names for everything - you may remember that "TextBox8" is the mobile number today, but when you have to modify it in three weeks time, will you then? Use descriptive names - "tbMobileNo" for example - and your code becomes easier to read, more self documenting, easier to maintain - and surprisingly quicker to code because Intellisense can get to to "tbMobile" in three keystrokes, where "TextBox8" takes thinking about and 8 keystrokes...

plan for maintenance: it will happen, and your memory of what is what will fade. Using descriptive names means that you can pick it back up faster in a few months time!

And 256 labels? Oh dear.
Use a DataTable instead, and set that as the DataSource for a table-based control (DataGridView) instead. It's a lot tidier, and much, much easier to work with (and layout neatly with scroll bars as required, and so forth)
It's also a lot easier on the user as well - you can provide search facilities very easily so they can find which register they are interested in much more quickly!
