>>value1:1 >>value2:2 >>value3:3
print maximum(maximum value1 value2)value3 Script Error:value1 has no value... Could you please elucidate and provide detailed correct code? Thanks.

3 (Which means I'm not able to reproduce your error). I think you should stick to the other proposed solution:
>> maximum-of reduce [value1 value2 value3]
== [3] the maximum-of function takes a block and returns it from the point where it finds the first occurence of the highest value:
>> maximum-of reduce [value1 value2 value3 value2 value3 value1]
== [3 2 3 1] So to retrieve only the value you need, use 'first:
>> first maximum-of reduce [value1 value2 value3 value2 value3 value1]

If you want the most flexible possible solution...
