    I don't know about 2007 but its just there to present maths in word documents and doesn't really calculate. Microsoft Excel can calculate stuff.

    The equation tools are for display [and re-editing] only. As mentioned, Excel can calculate. I guess you could embed an Excel spreadsheet in your Word document. You might also try writing a VBA script in Word.
