Not really, as the MS Office app available for Windows RT is a very scaled down compared to MS Office versions available for Intel based platforms, with no support for macros, add-ins, etc.

Do you have a reference for that?

Just google for articles (there are many of them). Try this for search string:

Office RT missing features macros add-ins

If you want it directly from the source, just look at Microsoft's Office RT Product page and expand the section labeled " What Office Home & Student 2013 features are unavailable in Office Home & Student 2013 RT?"

https://office.microsoft.com/en-us/home-and-student/office-home-student-rt-preview-FX103210361.aspx

There is not enough room in a single post here to quote the entire contents of that section. But, I'll include the highlights of what's missing from from Microsoft's Product page (each one of the below bullet points has more detail under it on the product page, and there's not enough room to include it all here):_

Across multiple applications

  1. Macros, Add-Ins, Forms, and Custom Programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
  2. Send Email Features (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote)
  3. Equation Editor 3.0 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
  4. Lync File Download
Word only
Grammar checking for certain language versions of Office

Excel only

Data Models

PowerPoint only

  1. Slide Library ActiveX Control
  2. Legacy Media Formats in PowerPoint
  3. PowerPoint Flash Video Playback
  4. Recording Narrations
