Default Table Links

I am working with tables consisting of 40 to 60 fields and in some cases 100-300 records. Because of the large number of columns I have to abbreviate the column headings. Therefore, I need a way to call up a more detailed description of the column headings. I can't find a simple way to to click on a column heading and then display a detailed description of that heading. That is, I need a relatively simple way to link to a rectangular-shaped box at the top of the database table that describes the particular column in detail.

In addition, I need to link to "PDF" files for each of the records in the database. How can I do that?

I have the WROX "HTML 4.01 Programmer's Reference," but I can't seem to "connect the dots" for the required information.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
