Use of Parentheses in QTP

Parentheses—To achieve the desired result and to avoid errors, it is important that you use parentheses () correctly in your statements. For more information, see below...
You must use parentheses around method arguments if you are calling a method that returns a value and you are using the return value. For example, use parentheses around method arguments if you are returning a value to a variable, if you are using the method in an If statement, or if you are using the Call keyword to call an action. You also need to add parentheses around the name of a checkpoint if you want to retrieve its return value.
Tip: If you receive an Expected end of statement error message when running a step in your test, it may indicate that you need to add parentheses around the arguments of the step's method.
Following are several examples showing when to use or not use parentheses.
