How do I write the crystal syntax

Hi, I am building a report that is group by a pat_id and lab dates with results for each of the dates.  For example, id#xxxx08 seen on 09/06/2008 with a result of 5.60
                                                                  02/11/2009 with a result of 7.10
                                                                   01/1/2010 result 11.0
I can write the formula to get the max date with this:
maximum({RESULT_DATE},({PAT_ID}) )
which will give me 01/11/2010 but how do I write the formula to pick up the 11.0? (ord_num_value)

There is no easy formula to get it however, if the order of the data isn't important you can sort by the date and then the record in the group header (descending sort) or footer (ascending sort) will have the value.

If you need them in some other order then you could use a set of formulas like

In the group header add a formula
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global DateVar grpMaxDate := maximum({RESULT_DATE},({PAT_ID}) );
""

In the detail section
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global DateVar grpMaxDate;
Global NumberVar ord_num_value;
If {RESULT_DATE} = grpMaxDate then
      ord_num_value := {ord_num_value};
""

In the group footer
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global DateVar grpMaxDate;
Global NumberVar ord_num_value;
ord_num_value
