Here is some code that works with combinatorial triangular sequences:
Table[Table[y[k_] = x /. Solve[Sum[Binomial[n, m]*x^m, {m, 0, n}] == 0, 
x][[k]], {k, 1, n}], {n, 1, 5}]
Table[y[k], {k, 1, 5}]
Clear[y]
Table[y[k_] = x /. Solve[Sum[Binomial[n, m]*x^m, { m, 0, 5}] == 0, 
x][[k]], {k, 1, 5}]
Table[y[k], {k, 1, 5}]
