Hi Shani,

"Amir" is a string, not an object description. Object descriptions (or  
object references or object expressions) look like:

field x
field "Address"
the long id of fld "Address"
button 52 of card "Settings" of stack "Preferences"
stack "Special Dialog" of stack "Main Project"

et cetera.

Best regards,
