When you are at QTP did you use variables to launch the actions? If so that is not recommend by HP Help guide for QTP 11 and UFT 11.5x( Object Model Reference for GUI Testing > Utility Objects > Utility Statements > RunAction Statement).

Here is clipping from both guides that reference this issue.

Note: You must specify the action name explicitly on the statement. Do not use a variable. For example, write:


and not:

RunAction aName


Recommend changing your code to not use variables.

The code is using QTP as a driver script to run an Excel spread sheet. Does that mean I will have to re write my driver script?

bubblehead712 is right. HP does not support or recommend using those types of frameworks, and neither do their professional support partners. These types of frameworks are extremely time consuming to build, troubleshoot and maintain. If the people that built it leave the company, it is very difficult for others to learn it to continue the work or maintain it. I STRONGLY discourage using this type of framework.

That's the risky part about frameworks. Anytime you use them, there is the possibility of having everything yanked out from under when a new version of UFT comes out. You have to expect a 'reset' of things which can lead to a maintenance headache!
