Hello everyone,

Is there a way to see the code of the excel built-in functions? Are these functions written on VB language? If not, is there anyway to see how are they built?

Hi,

As far as I know you can't see the code behind the functions.
And, no, they are not written in VBA. In fact VBA is often slower than using the worksheet functions.

Hi RickXL,

I'm sorry to hear that. I was hoping to find out how exactly did excel functions worked, I mean I can figure out what do they do but not how they were written.

Thanks for replying!
