  • Hi Maheshwar

    It really depends on what you mean by "Office365". There are a lot of variations...

    If you mean the "web apps" then you need the Apps for Office technology which means Visual Studio 2012 or 2013.

    If you mean SharePoint apps or "Cloud", then you need VS 2012 or 2013.

    For the above, this is not the right forum. You want to be in "Developing Apps for Office" or a SharePoint forum. From your use of the term "list items" it sounds like you need to be in a SharePoint forum.

    If you mean VSTO add-ins for desktop applications for Office 2013 then you need Visual Studio 2012 or 2013.
