    I don't have any programming experience.I write out tables for the 'California Super Lotto Plus' on paper which is time consuming.I want to learn programming to speed up the time.What is the best program for calculating tables and charts? I want better automation than 'Excel'. What is the difference between Visual Basic and Visual Studio? I have Window 8 32 bit

    What is the difference between Visual Basic and Visual Studio?
    Visual Studio is an Integrated Development Environemnt (IDE) from which you can create programs. Visual Basic is a computer language which comes as part of Visual Studio as well as the languages c/c++ and c#. There are various versions of Visual Studio of which the Express version is free to download and use but doesn't include extra 'features' (eg c++ MFC ) which are only available with the paid-for versions. I would suspect that the free version of Visual Studio Express would meet your needs.

    See http://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/do...R_CC=200323803
    All advice is offered in good faith only. You are ultimately responsible for effects of your programs and the integrity of the machines they run on.

    You can get better control of the Excel you know by programming it in the VBA language (Visual Basic for Applications).

    I'm sure you can do all this in Visual Studio. It's because it's the general development environment for all Microsoft supported languages.
