The problem's not your link; it's your format.  You have the Form Element type on the ow.id field as a Text instead of a ComFill.  You haven't told the tool you want to use the Find/Fill button on that field.  

 

In Form Designer, delete the text field you've got on ow.id and replace it with the ComFill Form Element

Then you shouldn't have to do anything.  Create a form, associate that form with the dbdict (in Form Designer, from the More menu, select 'Filename' and enter in the name of the custom table) and the link record should automatically associate itself with your new table.

can you create an unload of your dbdict, your link record and your form and attach it here?

Or, if not, can you paste a screenshot of your dbdict, your link record, and the format detail view of your form (in Form Designer, select your form and from the menu, select Format Detail)

Thank you, that solved the issue.
I thought the link file will be automatically associated to the new table and it doesn't depend on formats i use, but now it's clear to me.
