We are talking about beta coefficients, aren't we? As I remember it,
you calculate them by multiplying each regression coefficient by the
product of dividing its standard error by the standard error of the
dependent variable. That takes up three columns in your spreadsheet of
choice, and you do the sums in the fourth column.
