CAN I USE EEPROM AS PROGRAM MEMORY ON THE PIC?

Hi guys, Im relatively new to pics and Hi Tech c lite compiler. I'd like to know if it is possible to use eeprom memory(internal and, or , external) as
part of the program memory to increase the code capacity? Any idea on how to do that?
Thank you in advance..

With standard PICs, code can be only executed from flash program memory. Some special types have a data bus and can use external program memory.
