I have a Sharepoint list and value for one of its columns is Sum of two columns of SQL Server table , the values in SQL table are subjected to change from other source.

data view web part.  this web part is used to display data from SQL.  it will show the change immediately.

this article has a lot of info about DVWP:

one way to use DVWP is to add it to a page using sharepoint designer.  it's easy to configure the data source to point to sql.
