The example below gives a quick tweak:

\begin{table}
\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{*{3}{|c}|}
\hline
1 & 2 & 3\\
\hline
4 & 5 & 6\\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\caption{First Table}
\end{center}
\end{table}

\begin{table}
\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{*{3}{|c}|}
\hline
1 & 2 & 3\\
\hline
4 & 5 & 6\\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\renewcommand{\thetable}{\arabic{table}(a)}
\caption{Second table (a)}
\end{center}
\end{table}

\begin{table}
\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{*{3}{|c}|}
\hline
1 & 2 & 3\\
\hline
4 & 5 & 6\\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\renewcommand{\thetable}{\arabic{table}(b)}
\caption{Second Table (b)}
\end{center}
\end{table}

\begin{table}
\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{*{3}{|c}|}
\hline
1 & 2 & 3\\
\hline
4 & 5 & 6\\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\caption{Third Table}
\end{center}
\end{table}

If you routinely require such sub-numbering, it'd be better to have a look
at the "subfloat" package.
