Generated 2 tables based on 2 separate javascript arrays

I am trying to build out 2 html tables from 2 different JavaScript data arrays.

The first table builds out fine and structure looks great but the second table doesn’t populate data.

I tried adjusting the naming but I think since it’s looking for "tbody" both times.

Is there another variable to adjust this or perhaps a better way to have 2 separate tables from 2 different data arrays?

I swapped the naming and added ID tags to the tbody with no change in results. I was going to just rename the data tables but seems like the construction of the second table grabbing tbody is just adjusting the first tbody.

<div style="float: left;margin-right:10px">
    <table>
       <thead>
        <tr align="center">
            <th><h3>Name</h3></th>
            <th><h3>Time</h3></th>
            <th><h3>Temp</h3></th>
            <th><h3>Peel</h3></th>
        </tr>
       </thead>
       <tbody id="tbody"></tbody>
    </table>
</div>

<script>
const data = [  
        {name: "Apple", time: "25sec", temp: "100F", peel: "Peeler"},
        {name: "Orange", time: "50sec", temp: "200F", peel: "Knife"},
        ]

    const table = document.querySelector('tbody')

    data.forEach((item) => {
        table.insertAdjacentHTML( 'beforeend', `<tr>
                <td>${item.name}</td>
        <td>${item.time}</td>
                <td>${item.temp} </td>
                <td>${item.peel}</td>

            </tr>`)
    })

</script>



<div style="float: left">
    <table>
       <thead>
        <tr align="center">
            <th><h3>Name</h3></th>
            <th><h3>Time</h3></th>
            <th><h3>Temp</h3></th>
            <th><h3>Peel</h3></th>
        </tr>
       </thead>
       <tbody></tbody>
    </table>
</div>

<script>


<script>
const data = [  
        {name: "Apple", time: "25sec", temp: "100F", peel: "Peeler"},
        {name: "Orange", time: "50sec", temp: "200F", peel: "Knife"},
        ]


    const table = document.querySelector('tbody')

    data.forEach((item) => {
        table.insertAdjacentHTML( 'beforeend', `<tr>
                <td>${item.name}</td>
                <td>${item.time}</td>
                <td>${item.temp}</td>
                <td>${item.peel}</td>
            </tr>`)
    })

</script>

>Solution :

Consider extracting the row creation into a function and giving the two tbody elements unique ids to distinguish them.

function addRows(tbody, data) {
    data.forEach((item) => {
        tbody.insertAdjacentHTML('beforeend', `<tr>
                <td>${item.name}</td>
        <td>${item.time}</td>
                <td>${item.temp} </td>
                <td>${item.peel}</td>

            </tr>`)
    });
}
const data1=[{name:"Apple",time:"25sec",temp:"100F",peel:"Peeler"},{name:"Orange",time:"50sec",temp:"200F",peel:"Knife"},];
const tbody1 = document.querySelector('#tbody1');
addRows(tbody1, data1);
const data2=[{name:"Apple",time:"25sec",temp:"100F",peel:"Peeler"},{name:"Orange",time:"50sec",temp:"200F",peel:"Knife"},];
const tbody2 = document.querySelector('#tbody2');
addRows(tbody2, data2);
<div style="float: left;margin-right:10px">
    <table>
       <thead>
        <tr align="center">
            <th><h3>Name</h3></th>
            <th><h3>Time</h3></th>
            <th><h3>Temp</h3></th>
            <th><h3>Peel</h3></th>
        </tr>
       </thead>
       <tbody id="tbody1"></tbody>
    </table>
</div>
<div style="float: left">
    <table>
       <thead>
        <tr align="center">
            <th><h3>Name</h3></th>
            <th><h3>Time</h3></th>
            <th><h3>Temp</h3></th>
            <th><h3>Peel</h3></th>
        </tr>
       </thead>
       <tbody id="tbody2"></tbody>
    </table>
