Help Please

I am using UFT 12.52. I am trying to automate a report which is built on SAP HANA. When I record my script it records everything accurately. I used the object spy highlighter to validate that the objects are being highlighted accurately.  If I run the below code it fails with an error message (added at the bottom). But if I re-run the code without closing the previously opened browser window the code will pass. I am so lost. Please help



SystemUtil.Run "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe",""","%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%",""

Browser("Launch Pad").Page("Launch Pad")..Sync
Browser("Launch Pad").Page("Launch Pad").Frame("Frame").WebElement("User Run Reports").click

Browser("Launch Pad").CloseAllTabs


This is the error I receive:

Cannot find the "User Run Reports" object's parent "Frame" (class Frame).

Verify that parent properties match an object currently displayed in your application. 

In my OR, I have made sure FRAME has Title, html tag, and html_id (since name is missing). when I use object spy to highlight the frame it highlights the entire page. Please help

Re: Help Please


Just for debug purposes, did you try to add a wait statement before the click command? if the error thrown immediatly or is it waiting for the timeout?
