Capture data from 34410A: Excel Vis Basic  OR  Visual Studio Basic ?

I will be using a 34410A to capture a DC voltage at about 600/sec. This data capture will switch back and forth to capture the voltage, then (through another USB interface) a position value, forming data pairs. Approx 30,000 data pairs will be captured.

The final need is to have a text file of the sequential data pairs for analysis.

(note: I have to learn Visual Basic, or at least enough to do this)

If I use Visual Basic in Excel will I run into capture speed problems?

It looks like doing this in Excel is easier, but would there be advantages to doing it in Visual Studio (used to be stand alone Visual Basic) instead?
