Making a Table in Data View

Hello GIS community,

I have a problem with creating tables that look good enough to send to a client. We receive lab results for monitoring wells and I have been able to import this data table into GIS. I am able to associate them to the respective wells. However, we need to display the results of the associated well in a layer. I am able to do this using label expressions, but it does not look professional. Importing the table as an image results is just an image in layout view not being associated with a layer which does not work. Can anyone help?

Hi Aaron, 

What software are you using? Are you using ArcMap or ArcGIS Pro? We have dynamic tables in ArcGIS Pro, but not in ArcMap.  Here is the help topic from ArcGIS Pro:  Add and modify table frames—Layouts | ArcGIS Desktop 

If you are using ArcMap, there are ways to make dynamic tables using Python and ArcPy.mapping, but this would require some coding.
