If the table is below, we don't need to find it. Try ​(Please) See table below.

You are misunderstand me, Piscean.
I meant the same things with two words "table" and "chart". Because the description of two sentences above-mentioned is missing. The full message is "I attached the chart that show the all of sales target performance in a table."

Can you please help?

I have no idea what you're trying to say. Use different words to explain it.

Do you mean consolidated sales compared to targets?

A table and a chart are different things, though charts are sometimes presented in space they share with a table.

The YouTube video was made by someone for whom English is a second language. Nearly every slide contains a grammatical error.

If I want to express the data with sales target and achievement rate, should I use "table" or "chart"?

If you're asking which word to use, you should use the one that applies to the way you're presenting the data.

If you're asking which method you should use to present your data, you shouldn't use quotation marks. You should use the method that will be easiest for your reader to understand.

If you are looking for the difference between "chart" and "table" - a chart is a visual representation of the data in a table. Pie chart, bar chart, line chart.
Some tables may have some visual included - like an up arrow/down arrow; or a full, half or empty circle - but it's still presented in rows.

A graph would be a chart - it's visual.

You may hear a table called a "chart" but it's much less common to call a visual chart a "table."
