Referance custom labels in Sharing rule filter criteria


I have to create a crieria based sharing rule for Account and I was trying to referance a custom label in one of the filer.Unfortunately it is not working . Does any know,is there any way to referance a custom label in sharing rule filter ? Thanks in advance..


Custom Labels can only be referenced in Apex or Visualforce. Hence, instead of creating a criteria based sharing rule you can write some custom code to acess the custom label and then use this information to share the record using Apex (Apex based Sharing).
