Linking Versus Importing

You can work in Access with data from other programs in two ways: You can import it or you can link it.

When you import a table, as you just did, you are awarding it full Access citizenship. In other words, it becomes indistinguishable from any other table in your database. The source document, whether residing in another Access database or an external environment such as Excel, is left untouched and unaffected by any changes you make in your new Access table.
