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.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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);

1.  need to convert nuber to char;
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();
