What is the difference between Excel's Analysis ToolPak - VBA and just the Analysis ToolPak?

I can't find literature on the difference between the two Add-Ins.

Clarification would be great!

If you want to use the Analysis ToolPak functions in your VBA macros and functions, you should load the Analysis ToolPak - VBA add-in and set a reference to it in the VBA Editor using the Tools...References menu item. This was true in Excel 2003 and earlier. In Excel 2007 and later, you can use the functions in Analysis ToolPak directly. http://www.cpearson.com/excel/CallingWorksheetFunctionsInVBA.aspx

If you want to use Analysis ToolPak functions in your worksheet formulas, you should load the Analysis ToolPak add-in. The VBA flavor of it never did you any good.

The VBA version includes "Visual Basic for Applications" which allows developers to build functions, automate processes, etc. Basically it lets you can create macros and such.

I don't understand.  I can make a macro without this add-in...

It allows for programming in the Visual Basic 6 language though I think, and allows for integration with Win32.

I experimented with this, and yes, this is the answer I was looking for.
