Public object not being recognized by internal action

Hi Expert,

I am creating a script in QTP, it has a few internal actions (ActionA, ActionB...) and I have an associated function library commonFunctions.vbs

In my commonFunctions I have the code below:

Public PageA, PageB
Set PageA = Browser("A").Page("A")
Set PageB = Browser("A").Page("B")
And in ActionB (which is called by ActionA), I am making use of these Object variables:

If PageB.Link("someLink").Exist Then
End If

ActionA and ActionB both have the object repository used by the variables.

When I run the test, I get the following error:

Object doesn't support this property or method: 'PageB.Link'
Line (4): "If PageB.Link("someLink").Exist Then".
What am I missing? How come the variables are not defined in ActionB?

I feel like this is something simple but I am not able to figure it out.

Any help on above is really appreciated.

The issue doesn't appear to be the scope, but rather that sometimes QTP doesn't recognize the page object.

Try giving the condition explicitly like:

If Browser('A').Page('B').Link.Exists Then
