I need help,

I've spent three hours on a document yesterday, saved it as normal, and then this afternoon upon trying to open it I get this message:

"An error occurred during opening the file. This may be caused by incorrect file contents. The error details are: SAXException: [word/document.xml line 2]: Attribute w:themeShade redefined

Proceeding with import may cause data loss or corruption, and application may become unstable or crash.

Do you want to ignore the error and attempt to continue loading the file?"

If click yes then the document that results only has one page against 6 or 7 that I actually worked on...

Could somebody help me? C:\fakepath\IB Higher and standard SOW First examination 2020 French.docx

Repaired document ASKrepaired.docx.

docx documents are zip-container. You can unzip it and open the faulty part in a text editor, repair it and zip the content of the folder. I have done it for you already :)
