I know the genitive endings but if I said 'data table' would that translate to 'table of data'?

Yes. In fact, that is a very common mistake translating word combinations like city mayor, water supply, car sales etc as noun+noun literary. In most cases it should be transformed into mayor of the city, sales of cars.. with the Genitive case after of. Also adjectival forms of certain nouns can be used (city mayor can be both мер міста and міський голова).

.. or (your example) even "table with data"
