It made me think of Excel templates for reporting purposes, but I just do not know. Up to now I only heard that term applies to middle tier objects.

I have only heard stateless in reference to Java, not Excel.

I was right, they do mean run VBA code as a querying tool to access the database and dump it into an Excel template. They just made up the term.
