Why can't I print the contents of this table?

Just trying to add the name of a player to a table each time they click a button,
but for some reason it refuses to work.
The “print(“hello”)” works just fine, so I’m just really confused what’s going on.
script:

local Table = {}
script.Parent.MouseButton1Click:Connect(function()
	local plr = game:GetService("Players").LocalPlayer
	table.insert(Table, plr.Name)
	print(Table)
	print("hello")
end)

It needs to know where in the Table you want to print.
In this case you want print(Table[1]) , pulling the first value in the table.

Thank you! I’ll keep this in mind for later things.

You can use

print(table.unpack(ArrayName))

to print all of the array’s values at once as well, which is more in-line with how many other programming languages work while printing arrays, rather than printing the memory address of the array. (thx Forummer)

It should be noted that this will only work for arrays. The following script prints an empty result.

local tables = {["A"] = 1, ["B"] = 2, ["C"] = 3}
print(table.unpack(tables))

Roblox has a built-in feature which allows you to print a table’s contents via print(tables) instead of it printing the table’s address in memory.
