if its crashing means that method is not working, could be its not the supported method. You can ask yr developer whether the method is supported or not. Then look whether its indeed correct method for yr task or not. Looks like a support person help. well u only knows abt that object and its methods and properties
"Set fpSheet = .SwfObject ("fpsColumnParameters").Object.Sheets.get_Item( 0)
fpSheet.SetActiveCell 1, 2
cellContent = fpSheet.ActiveCell.Text"
I am not sure if you have copied the code directly from your script, but:
1. I see a dot before the object identification - e.g. ".SwfObject(...", which could cause a syntax error..
2. It looks like you are trying to use "physical" description to identify the FPSpread, and if that's the case you need to specify by shich attribute you want to identify the object - e.g. " SwfObject("swfname:=MyFPSpreadName)").Object.Sheet s.get_Item(0)"
3. The last thing, but still possible, is if you are trying to reach acell that does not exist, or by focussing it you select the entire FPSpread control
You may want to try to insert break points before each one of the lines and see what is QTP actually doing, or shich cell is it trying to focus.
