Setting a table as file.Read?

[lua]
customCheck = function(ply) local policetable1 = file.Read(“policesgtmjr.txt”, “DATA”) return table.HasValue(policetable1, ply:SteamID()) end,
[/lua]

I’m trying to set policetable to be the contents of the text file. The file exists and contains {“STEAMID1”, “STEAMID2”}

Is it the local policetable1 that’s failing?

(Error is Bad argument #1 to ‘pairs’ expected table got nil)

Also could I make this

[lua]
table.HasValue(file.Read(“policesgtmjr.txt”, “DATA”), ply:SteamID())
[/lua]

Is it saved as a JSON table?
