which programming language for tables and charts?

I'm doing some amateur research on financial data using spreadsheets but I need the flexibility of a programming or scripting language. Any suggestions?
I'd prefer a free language but I can check that myself.
My laptop's OS is Windows Vista Home Premium.

python is a comparatively easy language to learn. You will find a large source of existing code that you can use as building blocks for your own code.

Thanks scotty, I googled about Python after seeing your post and it looks good.
