# Sum of two beast mode calculated fields

βͺοΈ

Where A and B are calculated fields.

I have to show the sum of A and B in the card.

sum(a) + sum(b)

I think the issue here is that you can't name a beastmode from within another beastmode.

For example, if A in this case was something like:

Current Year Sales:

```sum(case when `year`=year(curdate()) then `sales` else 0 end)
```

and B were something like:

Current Year Expenses:

```sum(case when `year`=year(curdate()) then `expenses` else 0 end)
```

You cannot write a third calculated field for profit like this:

```sum(`Current Year Sales`) - sum(`Current Year Expenses`)
```

You would need to write out each calculation:

```sum(case when `year`=year(curdate()) then `sales` else 0 end)
-
sum(case when `year`=year(curdate()) then `expenses` else 0 end)
```

Hope that helps

Thank you.

It worked when I wrote out each calculation.
