link
Web page: Text or an image that when clicked opens a new web page or performs an action.
Access Table: Access can connect to a table in another Access database or to data in a another program. The outside table is "linked" to the database.
linked object
An object that will be updated if the original object changes. The source must be available, however, for this to happen. Databases may have links to tables in other databases. These tables will not be available if either of the databases has moved. Linked objects that are part of records, such as photos, are included in the database. They will update if the original photos changes. Linking to photos does not reduce the size of the database.

A tool in Access for managing the links to tables outside of Access. If the links are broken, you must use the Linked Table Manager to relink.
