max function in report

Hi. Here I attached two access files. Each one has a report and both reports have a textbox in their Report Headers with the same function. One work normal but another one shows ERROR. I want to find and know what is wrong in second file. Please don't post advices like using function in query as I know it. Please find cause of error. Thanks for your time.

RE: max function in report

There seems to be limited length of argument(s?) in formula (255 characters?). If you divide your formula to sum of two Max functions, it works.
In this case you can use =Max[countScores]) instead, that is already calculated for each entry in query.
