Lua Calling a function via local from another file


New Coder
I have this piece of code in one file:

if cc_value[4] ~= nil then
    local function_name = cc_value[4]
    function_name(db.actor, nil)

When the function being called is in the same file, it reads it from local and does what it's supposed to. However, if the function is in another file (example_file.script) and the following code is used…

if cc_value[4] ~= nil then
    local function_name = cc_value[4]
    example_file.function_name(db.actor, nil)

… it ignores local and tries to find a function called function_name in example_file.script, which is what should happen if the local wasn't there. How would one get it to recognize the local despite this?
