If it's a NES game and you're using FCEUX, then Debug -> Hex Editor -> File -> Load *.TBL File.

Those are all general purpose editors which tend to have no/minimal table support, the HxD developer did drop by here a while back but I don't think table support was the goal, and very rarely is it going to be able to load ROM hacking style .tbl files. You want something then from the ROM hacking side of things.

Personally I quite like Crystaltile2 for this (if memory serves its table format needs an extra line at the bottom that some table generators don't do so be aware of that if it crashes when trying to load your table file).

As above though poke around the section the links are on for this site and it will have a few different choices.
