Hi, the problem is not that it doesn't work. The problem is, that the parts of # you want to acces doesn't exist (except for the first one #[[1]]). Therefore, example = {1, 5, 7, 9}; Table[#[[i]], {i, example}] works as expected. Without knowing what you want to do it's quite hard to help you here.
