In cell E4 add this formula  and copy down:
=D4&C4

This is the shortcut method for the CONCATENATE function; the ampersand symbol (&) connects the two cell values together.

same as:
=CONCATENATE(D4,C4)

Thank you so much for your fast reply. But it looks like the emerged data cannot be copied, right ?

Sure; you can copy the cells and paste the values elsewhere.

1) Select all the cells to copy
2) Press [Ctrl]+[C]
3) Select the cell where you want to paste.*
4) Menu:  Home tab, Paste (drop arrow), Paste Special.  
5) Select "Values" from the dialog box and click the "OK" button.
paste special - values

* If you want to replace the formulas with the values, just skip step 3.

Regards,
-Glenn

Thank you for writing a lot. The real situation is a little more complex than the example i gave here. The real case should be like this:

as:dd=xgg&hh+x@uu--- all the column C is filled with as:dd=xgg&hh+x@uu. I would like to replace x in column C with column B. Since the colomn contain some special charaters, it cannot work. After replacing, each one should be like this
as:dd=expressgg&hh+express@uu

I'm pretty sure it can be made to work still, even with the special characters.

So, do you want to replace each occurrence of "x" in column C with the associated value in column B?  For example:
B13: express
C13: as:dd=xgg&hh+x@uu
D13: as:dd=expressgg&hh+express@uu  (temporary, to replace column C)

If this doesn't make sense, you may have to show some actual data.
