Linking images questions

I am preparing my 16 page newsletter for publication on offset printing. Most 
images in the newsletter are jpegs, a few are TIFFs. 

Once I insert all the images, I will convert them all to "Process Colors: 
CMYK" under the "Commercial Printing Option."

I have a few questions about inserting images.

What is the advantage of "linking" an image instead of "embedding" it for 
offset printing?

Also, if I do link an image to a file, do I have to size the image exactly as 
it will appear in the newsletter before inserting it or can I insert the image 
and then shrink it to the desired size?

Thanks for your help,

So if you make the pictures at 5% of the inserted size, how are you going to
reduce them so they print at the right size without quality loss?

Linking to ODBC Linked Tables
Hi: I wonder if you have any suggestions for this. We have moved our Access tables into Oracle and have created a MS Access Database that links to these ODBC tables.

In trying to link to already linked ODBC tables, Access gives an error and will not link to these tables. Is there a way to let our users link to the Access database that contains the linked ODBC tables? Any...
