Word Macro Command No Longer Working in 2013

When running a Word Macro, one of my people received "Run-Time error 4605:  This method or property is not available because this command is not available for reading" when running the following command:

Selection.InsertFile FileName:= _
        "N:\WORD\Files\NEW_LEASES\_FM_LeaseMstrs\LseWriterExport.tab", Range:="", _
        ConfirmConversions:=False, Link:=False, Attachment:=False

It works fine on other PCs and I checked her rights, etc., so it seems that this command possibly no longer functions in Word/Office 2013 (the rest of us have 2010 or 2007).  Any suggestions for a macro command that would work for both 20010 and 2013?  Thank you.

In  File/Options/General see if there is a check mark in the following box:
 
"Open e-mail attachments and other uneditable files in reading view"

If so Uncheck it.

Or Add this line to your code:
 
  ActiveWindow.View.ReadingLayout = False

InsertFile works on my Word 2007 as well, but is the active document open in reading mode? New restrictions may have been introduced with 2013.
