We re-examine theoretically the upper critical field of UPt3 for both and . We find that the f-wave superconductor(or state) recently identified can describe the upper critical field determined experimentally consistently, if we assume that the spin component of the order parameter is parallel to the c-axes. The related vortex lattice is also considered.
