"Mr Rommel" is correct, the problem lies with your use of double-quotes. Take them out.

But to get what you need, try the following;

select ''''||'Table A'||'''',sum(product_cost)
from mytable
union all
select ''''||'Table B'||'''',sum(product_cost)
from mytable2;

To get a literal in your answer set surrounded by single-quotes, you need to use 4 single-quotes, concatenated with the literal (which itself must be surrounded by single-quotes because it's a literal) concatenated with another 4 single-quotes.
