[c] Access table from other files

In file tables.c I have declared global array of strings like this (hex table):

const char *base16[] = {
"00", "01", "02", "03", "04", "05", "06", "07",
"08", "09", "0A", "0B", "0C", "0D", "0E", "0F",
"10", "11", "12", "13", "14", "15", "16", "17",
"18", "19", "1A", "1B", "1C", "1D", "1E", "1F",

What do I put into tables.h to make table accessable from other files?

If I put whole table in tables.h I get 'multiple definition' error on compile.

extern const char *base16[];
I guess it will have 256 elements, so you might explicitely state that:
extern const char *base16[256];
