I'm sure this is probably an easy answer, but how do you write data to a GUI handle (app.UITable)? The method below creates a new, windowed table and writes to it, but I only want to put my data into the already existing one shown below for my user interface.
[file,path] = uigetfile({'*.xlsx'},'Select an Excel File');
PathAndFile = [path,file];
t = readtable(PathAndFile);
fig = uifigure;
uit = uitable(fig,'Data',t);
uit.Data = t;

I'm assuming uit and t are your uitable and data. If they are refered to as something else, you'd have to change the syntax, e.g., as in @Image Analyst's answer.

If @Benjamin's suggestion, which I think should be
app.uit.Data = t;
instead of
uit.Data = t;
didn't work, maybe try turning it from a table into an array
app.uit.Data = table2array(t);
