What links are you referring to? We are not able to see the table or the links in it because we can't see your computer.

It sounds like these links, whatever they are, have gone stale somehow? Perhaps they are supposed to open an application that you no longer have installed?

It sounds like you need a newer version of Access to open the linked tables.
My guess is that the linked tables either use large integer datatype (bigint) or the datetime extended (DTX) datatype.
If so, you can enable support for each of these in Access options if you have a recent version of Access

I have a database to manage all data for a genealogical site.

The table Famille contains Info for people in the search from my family.

There are fields as: birth date, name, first name and a field how contain a link to open a family file write in HTML

The same linked file in my Hard Disk open by double clicking without any problem




There have been reports of a bug in Version 2205 of Office which disables hyperlinks. I believe this has been confirmed. Check which version you have and possibly roll back to Version 2204.

The bug in 365 v2205 disables hyperlink subaddresses but standard hyperlinks including those to local .html files still work perfectly for me. For example, one of my apps is used to maintain the pages in my websites:



The .html files can either be opened in the default browser or in an Access web browser control. Both methods still work fine in v2205


I'm just wondering whether you may be affected by the 'mark of the web'. Recently, security has been tightened on this area.

So that I can open local html files without error, I always add the second line (shown in green) in this screenshot to all .html files:



As an experiment, try adding exactly the same to one of your local .html files and see if it fixes the issue you are having. The line is


<!doctype html>
		<!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet -->
		<meta charset="UTF-8">

For more info, see e.g. internet explorer - ActiveX Content in a local web page, and "the mark of the web" - Stack Overflow


Hope that helps
