Hi acknak, I am having the same problem, coming up with the error message saying:
"File format error found at
SAXParseException: '[word/document.xml line 2]: Attribute w:cstheme redefined
', Stream 'word/document.xml', Line 2, Column 89434(row,col)."

Could you possibly fix my document for me as well? I am in a really tight deadline situation and would appreciate it immensely. Thank you so much in advance!

Try the attached - after repair I have opened it correctly on my computer and saved as .odt format, which you can later change to .docx.

My tools gave the error at a different location to that you report.

Thank you very much RoryOF! This is perfect, and I didn't expect a response so soon.
Not sure why the location I reported the error was different though. I'm not super tech savy. Do you have any idea why this happened or how I could avoid it next time?

It is best to work in .odt format until a document is complete; at that stage it can be saved to another format. I would recommend saving to .doc format rather than .docx, as all applications that read .docx can also read .doc, and OpenOffice and LibreOffice have better support for .doc format than .docx.
