Output Steps in PS

What is the difference between microsoft excel writer and microsoft excel output step?

Microsoft Excel Output step can write data to sheets in one or more Excel files. This step can write to a Microsoft Excel 2003 spreadsheet file (xls). If you want to write to an xlsx file (Excel 2007 and above), you may use the Microsoft Excel Writer step. The Split option allows you to write to multiple files.

Ok. Thank you.
