: Does anyone know the meaning of' the table has changed tops' when it refers to a person and normally when is it used?
: kindly reply,needed urgently.

Since you have posted this twice I will give you a guess as to what this phrase means.

Some people can be very chameleon-like.

A chameleon is an animal that changes colors as a defensive action so as to blend into its surroundings.

So if you are referring to a person as a "table that has changed tops" then maybe that person has the ability to take on a different persona, to become a people pleaser.

This person would act one way with you and then would change his or her style and say things and believe in things differently when in the presence of different people.

Just a guess.
