As in Excel, one can create custom functions and call them from within Excel itself.

Any such method in Word?  Such as embedding functions within the Word doc so that they return a value in the document?  I'm trying to avoid a search and replace.

Example:
My name is {getName()}.

You can write something in VBA to open or create an instance of the Excel application, then open a workbook do some Excel-specific work and briing the results back to Word.

What are you hoping to do?

From what I'm gathering it's not possible, as it is in Excel.  
Indirectly, you both answered what I was really asking.

Thanks.
