One of my files keeps showing the following error message

File format error found at SAXParseException: '[word/document.xml line 2]: Attribute w:eastAsiaTheme redefined ', Stream 'word/document.xml', Line 2, Column 102395(row,col).

Your help is urgently appreciated as I am up against a deadline, and I cannot access the file

Unzip your file.docx to a temporary directory, edit the word/document.xml file with a capable editor, look for the duplicated attribute at the indicated position, remove it, save, and freshen the zip with the updated file (zip -f file.docx word/document.xml). Of course do backup file.docx before.

If this is all mumbo-jumbo to you then publish the document somewhere and maybe someone jumps in.
