SQL Server Select to Add column values and then use results in where clause

I need a SQL Server Select that will add up multiple table columns and then use the results in a where clause.

Col1    Col2    Col3   Col4    Col5
100     99.99   4.00   500    4.00
4          0.99     3.33   9.99   10.00

I need to find all the rows with a total value of Col1 - Col5 greater 100.

Select *  where TotalValue > 100

You cannot use the expression alias in the where clause (only in the order by)
Either you repeat  the expression, use a subquery/inline query, or you could add that column directly as computed column to the table.

... or, my preference in this case, use CROSS APPLY to generate the desired alias name.
