integrate an interpolated function

I have defined numerical derivatives of functions by interpolation, 
because for some complicated numerical functions I was getting 
convergence problems using ND.

I have defined the second derivative of a 2 variable function by 
interpolating the function in a square region with the point where I 
want to evaluate the function at its center. I do it here for Sin[x*y]
as an example.

      w_?NumericQ, h_?NumericQ] := D[FunctionInterpolation[Sin[x*y], 
{x, om - \
h, om + h}, {y, w - h, w + h}][x, y], {y, 2}] /. x -> om /. y -> w

Then I want to perform an operation on this function which involves 
integrating it over one of the variables (multiplying it by another 
function, but that does not matter).

So I do 

fun[w_?NumericQ, h_?NumericQ] := NIntegrate[yyder[om, w, h], {om, 0, 

and I get a series of errors like: 

FunctionInterpolation::range: Argument {x, om - 0.3, om + 0.3} is not 
in the 
form of a range specification, {x, xmin, xmax}.

FunctionInterpolation::range: Argument {#2, #3, #4} is not in the form 
of a 
range specification, {x, xmin, xmax}

and so on.

Can you help me? Thanks,
