If you haven't already seen it, this http://www.codeproject.com/useritems/CrystalHelper.asp does a decent job of demonstrating how to access and manipulate the inner components of a crystal report.

I'm missing what you meant by "I can programmatically access a report total the Format Section Events of  a Crystal Report in a C# application" , what are you wanting to do?

I have a crystal report thet prints a Value column. At The bottom of each page it prints a Total of these values as a Page Total. I want to have access to the Total Value when it is gettting printed, and the Page Number and write these to an XML File  At the end of the report, I want to bind the XML file to a sub report and print all the Page Totals.

It may be possible to do exactly what you are wanting, but there are several approaches:

1) Create a dataset or xml file ahead of time that does all of the calculations ahead of time and then pass in the dataset/xml file to the report.

2) Create global variables in the report that store the totals from each page and then display them in the report footer
3) If I recall correctly, you can do summaries of summaries
