    That is the way that I understand it, yes. I'm sure this has to do with the fact that the controls and their data actually exist only on a person's frontend (since they are ActiveX or JavaBeans). This means that they are never available if a program is running in the background because there is no connection to a frontend.

    This is also why SAP came up with ECatt as a replacement for Catt. ECatt uses SAPGui Scripting. That way it can address control framework controls as well. You might look more into Gui Scripting as a solution if you need to load data into a control.

    Then again maybe there is a BAPI you can call to do the same update. Or if you are trying to update a text editor object, you might be able to call function module SAVE_TEXT. The details of that solution were just discussed in this forum a few days ago.
