Yes, the solution is to use pairs as ipairs uses an iterator that only returns pairs of values attributed to numerical keys. This means that they can only return values defined in list format. In addition, if ipairs encounters any nil value, it will stop in its tracks, pairs, on the other hand, iterates through the entire table and returns keys that are non-numerical as well, so that's why you can't use ipairs to do the job.

Hope it helps.
