Replacing DataTables?

Not sure if this is the right place to ask but, I am trying to replace one datatable with another. A perfect example is, if you try to delete a datatable that is in use, you can select a new one in the drop down to replace before you delete the other one.
Is there a way to do this and keep the datatable that is being replaced?

If I may introduce you to a different workflow, you could use Runtime DataTable (see signature) and use only links/file paths to the data table you want rather than using hard references to imported tables.

I just now saw this hahaha I will check it out, thank you
