You would need to go to your data frame properties. In the general tab there is an option to choose label engine. In there choose Maplex label engine and then rerun feature linked anno tool.

chaso17,

In order to create feature linked annotation for your ATSRoutes or Designated points, you will to do the following steps:

-Generate carto features so the _C features class are populated for your specifc map. http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#/using_Carto_Commander/01040000023s000000/

-Next you need to create a visual specification rule to grab the related information you want to display and add an expression to format it. This is where you would use SQL to make joins to the related table and then use VBScript to format the text so that it looks like the image you posted (we have fonts that are added to your fonts directory that can give you that inverse block look to your number and letters. Take a look at the PLTS Inverse fonts) http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#/What_are_visual_specifications/01040000023...

-Once your visual specification has grabbed the necessary data and formatted it properly, you can use the Create Feature Linked Annotation command to create the annotation http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//0104000002sp000000

Hope this helps.

Thanks,
