    Default What guidelines I should follow while editing ‘Globe with blue arrow’ table

    Hi
    I understand ‘Globe with blue arrow’ tables are liked to external tables.
    Have few of such table in my database.

    What pre-cautions I must follow when trying to play or edit such tables.
    For example, if I try to check ‘Design View’ of such table, access gives me warning.
    Table is a linked table whose design can’t be modified.

    If you want to add or remove fields or changes their properties or data types, you must do so in source database.
    The question on the pop-up is ‘Do you want to open it anyway’
    Can anyone please help me in this.

    It is as it states, edit any linked table desin wise in the back end, or delete the link and import the table into your front end.
    The latter is not something I would do.
    You can edit the table data no problem.
