How can I access the VBA callstack via code?
I didn't know this was even possible before I read this webpage: http://www.everythingaccess.com/vbwatchdog/callstack.htm

  You can't normally, but apparently they've dug into the VBA internals and figured out where the call stack lives in memory.  But there is nothing you on your own can do to read the call stack that I'm aware of.

  You can maintain your own stack by maintaing a collection and then popping things on and off as you enter and exit procedures, but you can't get at the VBA call stack through VBA itself.
