How do I fix the syntax for calling this function?

I am attempting to call a function that accesses a module with the correct weapon name and then executes a specific function depending on the combat move that is being done.

local module = require(modules.AbilityModules[child:GetAttribute("ParentWeapon")])
			local ability = module:[child.Name](Anim)

The syntax of the last line is incorrect and I was wondering if there was a correct implementation of what I am trying to do. I’ve looked briefly over the devfourm, but I couldn’t find any information specifically relating to this issue. Any insight into my issue would be greatly appreciated.

Hard to know without seeing how the function is defined! Can you share the whole module script?

here is the whole module script

local Katana = {}
local remotes = game:GetService("ReplicatedStorage").Remotes
function Katana:KatanaSlashes(Anim)
	local Cam = game.Workspace.CurrentCamera
	Cam.CameraType = Enum.CameraType.Scriptable
	Anim.AnimationId = "rbxassetid://10546676088"

	local player = game:GetService("Players").LocalPlayer

	local char = player.Character or player.CharacterAdded:Wait()
	char:WaitForChild("Humanoid").WalkSpeed = 0
	local part = char:WaitForChild("HumanoidRootPart")
	local ts = game:GetService("TweenService")

	local load = char.Humanoid:LoadAnimation(Anim):Play()
	--local CameraFrame = part.CFrame * CFrame.Angles(math.rad(0), math.rad(90), math.rad(45))
	local CameraFrame = part.CFrame +, 1, 0)
	CameraFrame = CameraFrame * CFrame.Angles(math.rad(0), math.rad(90), math.rad(10))
	CameraFrame = CameraFrame + CameraFrame.LookVector * -10
	Cam.Focus = part.CFrame
	ts:Create(Cam,,{CFrame = CameraFrame}):Play()
	Cam.CameraType = Enum.CameraType.Custom
	char:WaitForChild("Humanoid").WalkSpeed = 16

return Katana

There’s really no need for your module’s function to be defined/called with a colon operator (since you’re not employing any OOP practices).

If child.Name is ‘KatanaSlashes’ then replace each colon operator with a dot operator.

function Katana.KatanaSlashes(Anim)
local ability = module[child.Name](Anim) --Only valid if 'child.Name' is 'KatanaSlashes'.
