Yes. You can build the text and tables in the Word application and create an Autotext entry from it. Then you can open any document and insert the Autotext entry at the current selection point.

If you require some sort of automation, either to vary the text and tables according to some parameters, or because it is a part of an already automated process, it would be possible to build the tables and text programatically.
