Can you run third party applications multiple times with MATLAB for analysis?

I would like to know whether I can open a third party application using MATLAB and write a code so that the third party application opens a xlsx file, adds a value to a row using its algorithm and then save it in a folder. What I want to do is that the code in MATLAB runs this operation 100 times. Is this possible?
Thanks in advance.

Sometimes it is possible. It depends on the application, on whether it accepts command line arguments; and if you are using MS Windows, on whether it has an ActiveX control for it.
Similar things have been implemented for some applications, but the details vary a fair bit with the application.
