need sql CASE statement to replace excel formula

I have  a table with field names "0616" "0716" "0816" etc for 24 months. These fields contain numbers.
I also have a field that gets todays date and translates it to "0616" or "0716" etc.
I need a CASE statement to replace this excel formula.
=IF(TDMMYY="0816",(N2+O2),IF(TDMMYY="0916",(N2+O2+P2),IF(TDMMYY="1016",(N2+O2+P2+Q2))))

I think it would start
CASE
WHEN 'TDMMYY' = '0816' THEN ...
what would the expression be to add the numbers from the fields named "0716" + "0816" + "0916"
please see attached sheet for screen shots that may make this clearer.

As always, Thanks you for your assistance.

in the table the field names are not "n2" and "o2" they are "0716" and "0816".
so will
WHEN TTMMYY = '0816' THEN 0716+0816
add the amount in those fields together to get the total?

    WHEN '1016' THEN ...
