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.

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.
