Excel repair error detail

Folks,
A recent problem with my workbook has appeared that causes Excel to do a repair. Here's the results from that repair.

"Excel was able to open the file by repairing or removing the unreadable content:

Removed Feature: Object from /xl/workbook.xml part (Workbook)
Removed Feature: OLE Control Extension from /xl/workbook.xml part (Workbook)
Lost ActiveX controls."

Here's the log error detail:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="true"?>
-<recoveryLog xmlns="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/spreadsheetml/2006/main">
<logFileName>error044680_01.xml</logFileName>
<summary>Errors were detected in file 'G:\Excel\Excel Formulas and Functions Revised.xlsm'</summary>
-<removedFeatures summary="Following is a list of removed features:">
<removedFeature>Removed Feature: Object from /xl/workbook.xml part (Workbook)</removedFeature>
<removedFeature>Removed Feature: OLE Control Extension from /xl/workbook.xml part (Workbook)</removedFeature>
</removedFeatures>
</recoveryLog>

I have no clue what could be going on. I'm using 2010 on an Win 7 platform.

Have you tried a manual repair within Excel?

To manually repair a file

    On the File menu, click Open.
    In the Open dialog box, select the file you want to open, and click the arrow next to the Open button.
    Click Open and Repair, and then choose which method you want to use to recover your workbook.

Is the excel file stored on local drive or network drive?

Is there any link to the excel file?
