TKinter problem

To whom this may concern,
                                        Below is the source code, which

demonstrates a
problem I am having making a GUI for my python project  work.
'table.txt'
is a file that is read from the same folder.

My code writes to a text file 'table.txt', and 'table.txt' is displayed
in
the GUI. The user can generate new data at the click of a button
which re-writes 'table.txt', but I can only add the new table to the
GUI
 window rather than 'update' the existing one.

Any assistance would be much appreciated,

Regards,
Christian Wood.
