JavaScript: Global variable in Internal script vs External script

I want to fetch an id of an element in js and store in a variable. in internal script, i used a global variable to fetch it and used it in a function.

function try(){

This works perfectly fine as I get a alert. but when i use the same piece of code in external script, the 'link' variable happens to have value 'null'. I get this error : "new.js.4 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot set property 'onclick' of null" when the fuction is executed.

Why is that the variable is not able to fetch the id in the external script??
