I can't send a message with a field to another handler

I've written functions/handlers to convert between pennies and
I'm trying to write a function or handler that can add them, but am
getting caught up in the parsing.
I've tried a handler like
on dlrAdd amt, tgt
put dlrStr(dlrVal(amt) + dlrVal( "fld " & quote & tgt & quote))
into field the long name of fld tgt
but this only works when the target is on the same page--a tgt name
like "myTot of Card 1" results in an unfound error (it's looking for a
field with that name on the current page, i believe)
on dlrAdd amt
--send to a field to add a dollar amount to it
put dlrStr(dlrVal(amt) + dlrVal(the target)) into the target
send "dlrAdd" && field sbFld to fld ("sbt_" & sbFld)
to get the target field to add the amount to itself, but this doesn't
get the field amount passed.
I'm trying to have a single handler here to make this all maintainable.
