combining columns all the way down

I am trying to combine two columns of information in excel but th
concatenate function doesnt seem to work for it. It may just be m
ineptitude in excel but I just cant seem to figure this out.

I have 3 colums

Column A__________Column B___________Column C
tree_______________ .jpg
dog________________.gif
House______________.png

But I cant seem to be able to make it so that column C has tree.jpg an
dog.gif and house.png

Is concatenate the wrong thing to use here? or am I making my formula
incorrectly

Well, you didn't tell us what formula you are using, so we can only
guess that it is incorrect.

Try this in C1:

=A1&B1 

and copy this down your range of data.

Does that work for you?

Again, you don't give enough info to us to give a certain answer.  I
the text you listed all in one cell?  Part in one cell, part i
another?  If not, are you trying to pull this text from within 
cell(s) that contains other text?

More info, please and give detailed examples of your data and expecte
results

Column chart with both value x and y-axis
I was wondering if it is possible to define the x and y axes from two columns of data for a column chart.

When I try to do it now, it plots both sets of data as separate bar series and I want it similar to XY scatter but with colums instead.
