how 2 sum a maximum value summary field in crystal

How can I sum a maximum summary field in crystal.  I have a summary field that is the msximum of a # of days field by patient in crystal.  I need to sum the maximum values to get a total for all patients.  Running total won't allow me to sum the maximum summary and I haven't been able to sum using the whileprintingrecords method.

How does that give you the sum of the maximum value of a field?

Your question inferred you were calculating the Maximum of a field of a group and you wanted to sum that field.  Since you can't do a summary function on a summary field how does the comment solve the issue?
