mai is on a distinguished road

I would like to calculate the flow of the total pressure with the patchFieldFlow function object.
For the static pressure the entry in the controlDict file is as followed

type patchFieldFlow;
verbose true;
fields (
factor 1.0;

Just replacing "p" by "ptot" doesn't work.
Who knows what has to be done ?
