How to connect DAC to op amp in PIC32?

I'm using a PIC32MK1024MCF064 and I want to pipe the DAC output through a unity gain op amp. But I'm having trouble figuring out how.
The DAC reference manual (http://ww1.microchip.com/...iceDoc/60001327A.pdf), page 2, says "The voltage can be used as a reference source for comparators or can be used as an offset to an Op amp" and "Output of CDAC can be internally connected to Opamp/Comparator input as reference voltage."
But the op amp manual (http://ww1.microchip.com/...ator_DS60001178C.pdf), page 3, has a block diagram that does not show a path from the DAC output to an op amp input (it does, however, have a path from the DAC to the comparator). And none of the SFRs seem to configure the op amp's inputs as needed.
What am I missing?
Thank you,

    I don't see a way to connect the DAC to the op-amp either other than by external means. I'm guessing it's a typo and this is a good, straightforward question to ask of Microchip.
