Editing one of two tables in layout causes both to become identical

Discussion created by jamesh on Apr 20, 2012
Hello please help!

I have 2 MS Excel tables in a ArcMap layout with different data shown. When I double click one of them to simply change the formatting (i.e. center text), the other box is replaced with the exact same data as in the one I just edited. I tried copying and pasting them from archived documents to no avail. I simply cannot change one of them without replacing the other with the same thing! Really Bizzare, why might this be happening?

thanks, James
