You will simply need to open the document that has the other document name in it, read the text from that document and open it.  Such as:

    Selection.HomeKey Unit:=wdLine, Extend:=wdExtend

    Documents.Open FileName:="C:\delme.doc", ConfirmConversions:=False, _
        ReadOnly:=False, AddToRecentFiles:=False, PasswordDocument:="", _
        PasswordTemplate:="", Revert:=False, WritePasswordDocument:="", _
        WritePasswordTemplate:="", Format:=wdOpenFormatAuto
