I'm trying to upload an excel document with a few macros to a 2013 SharePoint, I don't know if I can use the macros via "View in Web Browser" option. I cant get them working, although if I download the document and I open it in Microsoft Office Excel, they work great.

I hope you can understand what's my problem

Are you asking if you can run macro's in an excel document if you view this excel workbook in a web browser? – Robert Ilbrink Mar 22 '13 at 14:00
Excel Web Services does not support VBA. If you need to run the macros you will have to open the file in Excel, not in the Web browser. – teylyn Mar 24 '13 at 7:18

You needed SharePoint's Excel Services to do this.

Not everything works of course so you need to read through the microsoft documentation and do some testing.
