Can I debug into Stats functions in Microsoft Excel

Dear Experts,
I need to know the specifics of how one of Excel's statistics operations works (to give you the very gory details I need to know how they calculate the standard error of the coefficients in a multivariate regression).

Can I debug into the regression procedure in Visual Basic?  If so can somebody tell me the steps?
Best Wishes,
Phil

I don't think you can. With .NET, you can get the disassemble the IL code and get back C#/VB.NET code but Excel is written in C++ (probably) so I don't see a chance.

Really - what about if I find a way to install an earlier version of Excel.  I remember editing macros in Excel 2003 in VB.  Is there no way to do that with stats functions like regression?
