Math Trig Complex Class

Public Function ATAN( _
    ByVal vX As Variant _
    ) As Variant

"Inverse Tangent" or "Arctangent"
Angle whose tangent is X.
Inverse of the Tangent function.

vX: Function returns the principal value of the angle whose tangent (expressed in radians) is vX. Function returns Null if vX is Null or cannot be fixed up to a real or complex number (as defined by the ComplexStringToReals function). Complex numbers are represented within strings as "R|I" where R is the real part and I is the imaginary part.
