In B14 of the sample spreasheet, enter this formula:

=CONCATENATE(B2,"-",E2)

You can copy it to other cells.

You can even use this macro

Sub concaddr()
For Each cel In Intersect(ActiveSheet.UsedRange, Range("B:B"))
If cel.Value <> "" And cel.Row > 1 Then cel.Value = cel & "-" & cel.Offset(0, 3)
Next cel
End Sub
