<Where/how can I determine the database>

In the Navigation Pane, hover the mouse pointer in any of the linked tables from the SQL server and you can view its connection string . You can find there the name of the database as well as the sql server.

<Where/how do I change it?>

Altering the table structures must be done in the SQL Server.

Sincerely,
Ed

When I hover over the table name, all I get is the table name. Also, I did not mean I wanted to change tge structure - I want to change the linked database.
