I was able to reproduce the same "hang" when opening this file in OpenOffice Calc. When opening this file in excel, it was also slow to open, but eventually did. Opposed to OpenOffice Calc where the document did not open at all. Unfortunately, I do not know why this error is occurring. But this appears to be a problem with compatibility with the graph included in the document, because it opened fine in calc after I deleted it in excel.
