I am investigating this issue.
Comment 2 Jianyuan Li 2012-09-20 01:45:50 UTC
Background: In MS, there are two kinds of controls: Form control(TBX) and ActiveX control(OCX). 
Root cause: AOO exports the two as the same one TBX. Controls in sample file are OCX.
Resolution: Differentiate the two kinds when import and export them individually. There is key points -- object ID which will impact the running of exported OCX controls. Handle it when import and export.
