About loading existing tabular data onto a map

Not all the tabular data associated with a layer has to be stored in its attribute table. You may choose to store some data in separate tables—for instance, data that changes frequently such as monthly sales figures. You can add this tabular data directly to your map as a table and use it in conjunction with the layers on your map. These tables don't display on your map, but they are listed in the table of contents on the Source tab. You work with these tables as you would any table based on geographic features. For example, you can:
