Union Query help

I have 2 data imports from excel.
I have a union query that correctly sums the data  [ImportAP].[Amount in Local Curr] and [ImportAR].[ExpectedAmontAR] (its groups and shows the balance between these two fields) but now I need to add a separate sum that shows the sum for [ImportAP].[Amount in Local Curr] and  [ImportAR].[ExpectedAmontAR] ...basically showing the amounts the query uses to arrive at the sum balance.  I would need to extra columns to show the separate amounts of ImportAP].[Amount in Local Curr] and  [ImportAR].[ExpectedAmontAR] and I do have these columns in the query I made but the amounts dont appear.  I think you will see where I went wrong once you open the query entitled "doesnt work".  

I have attached a file with the 2 separate imports from excel and the query that correctly sums and the one I have made to sum the separate amounts as described above.  

thank you for your help.

You went half the way as you need dummy values for the "missing" column in both selects in the union query. So try this:
SELECT 
    A.YearMon, 
    Sum(A.SumAmount) AS Total, 
    Sum(A.SumAP) AS SumAP, 
    Sum(A.SumAR) AS SumAR
FROM 
    (SELECT 
        Format([Net due dt],"yyyy mm") AS YearMon, 
        Sum(ImportAP.[Amount in local cur]) AS SumAmount, 
        Sum(ImportAP.[Amount in local cur]) as SumAP, 
        0 As SumAR
    FROM 
        ImportAP
    GROUP BY 
        Format([Net due dt],"yyyy mm")
    Union ALL
    SELECT 
        Format([BegOfWeekDate],"yyyy mm") AS YearMon, 
        Sum(ImportAR.ExpectedAmtRec) AS SumAmount, 
        0 As SumAP, 
        Sum(ImportAR.ExpectedAmtRec) as SumAR
    FROM 
        ImportAR
    GROUP BY 
        Format([BegOfWeekDate],"yyyy mm")
     )  AS A
GROUP BY 
       A.YearMon;
