Where does a vapor barrier fit in?

If a vapor barrier is supposed to be on the inside of a wall in a cold climate and on the outside of a wall in a warm climate.....where does a vapor barrier go in relation to the Tyvek? If Tyvek is not a vapor barrier and you need a vapor barrier do you put it up inside the Tyvek in a warm climate? I've not seen this done locally..... Do you use Tyvek in leiu of a vapor barrier even though it ain't one?
