I am having an issue where I want to find a value within a table.

I am trying to use `table.find()`

not to find a value itself but what the value is defining.

For reference I want to find “Common” in this table to find what it equals using a number that it returns:

```
local Prefixes = {
Common = "a",
Uncommon = "an",
Rare = "a",
Epic = "an",
Legendary = "a",
Exotic = "an"
}
```

So what I am trying to do to find it is:

```
CurrentPrefix = table.find(Prefixes, Common)
```

and then:

```
Prefixes[CurrentPrefix]
```

to find the value of the input, but it just returns `nil`

.

This is *I think* because if `Common = "a"`

then `table.find`

would be searching for `"a"`

rather than `Common`

which is not what I want.

In this case `Common`

is an object value rather than a string.

I want to find the number in the table that `Common`

is at, which is what `table.find`

is supposed to return.

If anybody has solutions please let me know. Also if what I said is too confusing then just ask for clarification and I’ll try to help.
