Directly, no. Indirectly, you can convert it to another format. Something like PDF works well if you need to keep the formatting and layout. Something like RTF works well if you want to keep most of the formatting. You can save as RTF in all versions of Word. You can save to PDF in recent versions of Word.

The Calibre manual explains the process of converting Word documents to more usable formats like epub:

If you're on a Mac, Apple's Pages word processor can open Word files and export documents to .epub files for eReaders.

In the developer subforum, there is a thread about using the kindle pdf viewer. Not for .doc or .xdoc.

If you've got the document on your computer, save it as .rtf before loading it on your eReader. RTF documents will work fine on your kobo. PDF is less desirable, because ereader screens are too small to work well for fixed format documents intended for larger screens.
