This question already has an answer here:
I have joined some data from Excel (.csv) "text" to my attributes table of one feature class. However I can't edit it. I found out it is still connected to Excel file from where I added it, and I need to edit changes in original Excel file to make them appear in ArcMap 10.2.
I'd like to know, how can I break the link from the original file and make the data appear independently in a 'field' inside the feature class.
