How to display (open) a long table at a predetermined row ?

Reading through the forum I have not found a question (or answer) to this problem, I have a table with 450+ entries, but I can only link to the page holding the table, and this always starts from top.
Is there (a simple :-)) way to display a given line through a link on another page? (Is there a "trick" to create a link in another page, that opens the table to display lets say line 320 ? This is to free users from having to scroll through a lot of pages to arrive at the desired item - some users might even think the site is buggy, since the requested item does not show up immediately.
The table in question can be seen at: nslokal.ns-arkiv.dk/luftfoto/

    You can use the row().show() plugin to jump to the page with the data you want to view.

    https://datatables.net/plug-ins/api/row().show()

    You would use row-selector to define the row to go to.

    OK - there is a problem here. The links to the datatable are in a PDF-file, so how do I put the programming into this file so that it still looks "pretty" to the non-programmer user?

    Not sure I understand your question. Maybe this example will help:

    Click on the "Find Quinn" button and you will see the display change to page 5 where the row containing "Quinn" is at.

    Thanks for your effort but this gets too complicated for solving my problem. I will have to figure out some sort of work-around. Probably ugly - but functional I hope.
    Will remember these suggestions for a future page with a different lay out.
    Thanks.
