I don't believe that you can. You may be able to use Java.

you cannot run any script or  VBA in Excel Online, but you can open and edit VBA-enabled spreadsheets without removing (or corrupting) the VBA contained in the file.

what makes Excel more powerful is, that Excel Online supports content add-ins for Office. Content add-ins integrate web-based features as content that can be shown inline with a document. You can get an add-in for Excel from the Office Store under the Insert Tab in Excel online shown in screenshot below.

Excel Content Add-ins are developed using Office.JS javascript and is cross platform compatible.
