|I have a task to complete. I'm trying to learn Visual Studio. And I have another task of programatically manipulating data inside and existing Excel worksheet.
It will involve manipulating an Excel Spreadsheet. This will involve Opening, Closing, Saving, Modifying cells, etc.
I wish to also learn Visual Studio IDE. To do both, I'd like to write a simple program example (or see one) that uses Visual Studio, without any aftermarket libraries, like Panda or others.
Basically what I'd like to do is install Visual Studio and all relevantt tools that comes with it, to support this task?
I have already installed Visual Studio 2022. I also have the Community version on another computer. I think I have options on what compiler to use. That is, I think my Visual Studio comes with the usual suspects C#, C++, Python, etc. Correct me if I'm wrong.
1) How hard is it to use just Visual Studio, and one of the included compilers to, Open, Close, Edit, Save, etc., Excel files?
2) What included compiler should I use? or that is, which is best for what I want to do?
3) Is there a good Visual Project Template, that illustrates doing what I need to do.
I might eventually use some of the add on libraries, but for now, I'd just like to keep it simple. I also realize that using something like Panda, or other adons, might actually make it easier. But the learning curve might be longer.
I just need to be pointed in the right direction, for my initial tasks.
