62. VB, VBScript, VBA, VB-winCE,
Here it is, (clear as mud), the definitive guide..... ;)

Visual Basic version 5.0 and above
"By default, applications created in Visual Basic are compiled as interpreted or p-code executables. At run time, the instructions in the executables are translated or interpreted by a run-time dynamic-link library (DLL). The Professional and Enterprise editions of Visual Basic include the option to compile a native code .exe. In many cases, compiling to native code can provide substantial gains in speed over the interpreted versions of the same application; however, this is not always the case."

"An interpreted, object-based scripting language that is a subset of the Microsoft Visual Basic programming language."

Visual Basic for Windows CE
"Because a Visual Basic program for Windows CE is not an executable module (a .vb file is interpreted by the Pvbload.exe run-time engine), your .vb application file must be listed in the FILES section."

Visual Basic for Applications (VBA)
no option for native code compilation - as best as I can tell, it uses pseudocode or pcode which is then interpreted at run time.
