Concatenation in C# uses the + and not the & operator.
 
mystring1 = mystring + j.ToString;

indeed it should be:
mystring1 = mystring + j.ToString();

but I prefer:
mystring1 = string.Format("{0}{1}", mystring, j);

it gives me an error to add a char to a string.  I am converting a integer to a letter and appending a number to the end for cycling to a spreadsheet.
Such as char(65) = A + number.tostring = 1, then change to char(66) = B + number.tostring = 2, etc.

I hope this is more clear as my intentions.

All of the following will work, but the latter two address the problem of string being immutable in .NET.

mystring1 = mystring + j.ToString();
mystring1 += j.ToString();
mystring1 = String.Format("{0}{1}", mystring, j);
mystring1 = String.Concat(mystring, j);

See reference for immutable:

If you wish to add a number to a char simple to the following:

char c = (char)65;
c++; // This increment to 66 / B

// You can also do this:
c += 5; // This should give you F

I forgot to mention this option in the previous comment:

char c = (char)65;
string s = "1";

// Use on of the following
int result2 = c + Convert.ToInt32(s);

or

int result3 = c + int.Parse(s);

2.  need to convert nuber to string;
3.  need to add both together to get "A1" , "A2", "B1", "B2", etc;

try with this:
mystring1 = mystring.ToString() + j.ToString();
