Hi!

I'm trying to label a feature in ESRI ArcView.
From the attribute table, the length of feature is more than 50 characters. For this, I want to label the feature on 2 or 3 rows. Is there any other possibility beside the graphics method or Maplex?

You can do this with label expressions using the standard labeling engine. If you search the Esri sites for "stacked labels" or "label expressions"you should find plenty of help on getting this done.
Here's a section from the 9.3 help, with examples. Scroll down to the parts about stacked labels.
