does any one know of any reference guides to show all available field calculator functions and the correct sytax for each?

emailed tech support and they showed me this: http://resources.arcgis.com/content/kbase?fa=articleShow&d=29627

though can't seem to find what i'm looking for.


one problem i was having was working out the maximum value from two colums

ID |         DEPTH_1 |         DEPTH_2 |          MAX_DEPTH
...
...
...

in the end i ended up converting my shp to tab and doing it in MapInfo updating the "MAX_DEPTH" field using "maximum(DEPTH_1,DEPTH_2)"

i am positive that this function exists in Arc i just don't seem to be able to find it, i've tried a fair few combinations of "max" "maximum" "()" "[]" and can't seem to find a statement that works in arc any ideas?
