VBA provides two methods:

AddFromFile: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ff191786.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396
AddFromGUID: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ff835634.aspx

That said, it is rare in the extreme to see these methods used in standard applications. What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

if you are having problems  regarding references in mix versions of office,
- develop/revised  your db app using the lowest version of office.
- use late binding (my preference) and worry no more about MISSING references.
