"Function tried to send a message of type number"

I'm sure this is some type of newb thing. I'm trying to return a value from my array with:

return msg.payload[0].V

(Yes, I want the first value in the array. )
But I keep getting this error:

"Function tried to send a message of type number"

Does the return need to be converted to a string or some other format?

Object must be returned. msg is object. Object can have properties. Mostly we use payload for transport the valuable info. This payload property can be any type.
return msg.payload[0].V sends out number as V is probably number in your case.
You should use that V as msg.payload
msg.payload = (manage the value of V here).
then return msg

msg.payload = msg.payload[0].V
