Appending tables in ArcMap gdb

Hi all - ArcMap noob looking for some answers, as I've made a few mistakes already and don't want to have to recreate all my feature classes and relates again.

 

I have two tables (building details) that relate to multiple feature classes (buildings), with the relationship based on "building_number" to provide building details when clicking on the building with the info cursor.  I want to know how to add records to the tables both in bulk or individual rows without breaking the relates.  Also, I've noticed that when I export from Excel to the gdb, it doesn't include numerous records with underscores, but it does from a CSV.  Am I doing something wrong?

 

To add to this, I'm trying to create a copy of the entire project in a "Test" folder so as not to blow up the production map, but the association of the mxd stays with the original gdb.  How can I point everything to the "test" gdb without having to recreate all relationships, polygons, etc.?


Thanks in advance,

 

Jim
