It is possible to upload Word templates containing Word macros. Word macros are little pieces of functionality embedded in Word files which can make handling Word files a lot easier. Word macros are written in Visual Basic and can be used for different purposes such as applying special formatting or calculate values.
For further information, please refer to the MS Office documentation.
