Can someone please help me with the below scenario:
Where A and B are calculated fields.
I have to show the sum of A and B in the card.

... what have you tried?
sum(a) + sum(b)
what's the problem?

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.
