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

Try putting parentheses around the card identifier:

fld "yourField" of (card "yourCard")

HC used to be finicky about card identifiers, frequently concatenating any following terms. Lock this sort of thing out by explicitly corralling the card name or whatever.

Or I am missing something...

that works when I spell it out (which is what I did when using
straight arithmetic instead of formatting)

The problem is passing the target field as a variable; livecode
handles tgt containing "myfield" just fine, but I haven't found a way
to send it "myfield of that other card" without it looking for a field
on the same card with that name.
