These are the examples from Notes Help (search for 'AppendDocLink').

1. This script creates a new mail memo. In the Body item of the memo, the script places a link to the current database.
Dim session As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim newDoc As NotesDocument
Dim rtitem As NotesRichTextItem
Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
Set newDoc = New NotesDocument( db )
Set rtitem = New NotesRichTextItem( newDoc, "Body" )
Call rtitem.AppendDocLink( db, db.Title )
newDoc.Subject = "Here is a link to the database"
newDoc.SendTo = "Lauri Nodwell"
newDoc.Send( False )

2. This script creates a new mail memo. In the Body item of the memo, the script places a link to the Boots folder in the current database.
Dim session As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim view As NotesView
Dim newDoc As NotesDocument
Dim rtitem As NotesRichTextItem
Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
Set view = db.GetView( "Boots" )
Set newDoc = New NotesDocument( db )
Set rtitem = New NotesRichTextItem( newDoc, "Body" )
Call rtitem.AppendDocLink _
( view, view.Name & " in " & db.Title )
newDoc.Subject = "Here is a link to the Boots folder"
newDoc.SendTo = "Lauri Nodwell"
Call newDoc.Send( False )

3.This script creates a new mail memo. In the Body item of the memo, the script places a link to the first document in the Boots folder in the current database.
Dim session As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim view As NotesView
Dim newDoc As NotesDocument
Dim rtitem As NotesRichTextItem
Dim doc As NotesDocument
Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
Set view = db.GetView( "Boots" )
Set newDoc = New NotesDocument( db )
Set rtitem = New NotesRichTextItem( newDoc, "Body" )
Set doc = view.GetFirstDocument
Call rtitem.AppendDocLink _
( doc, doc.Subject( 0 ) & " in " & view.Name )
newDoc.Subject = _
"Here is a link to first document in the Boots folder"
newDoc.SendTo = "Lauri Nodwell"
Call newDoc.Send( False )

4. This script creates a new mail memo. In the Body item of the memo, the script places a link to each document in the Boots folder in the current database. Each link is followed by a tab, the Subject item of the document being linked to, and a carriage return.
Dim session As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim view As NotesView
Dim newDoc As NotesDocument
Dim rtitem As NotesRichTextItem
Dim doc As NotesDocument
Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
Set view = db.GetView( "Boots" )
Set newDoc = New NotesDocument( db )
Set rtitem = New NotesRichTextItem( newDoc, "Body" )
Set doc = view.GetFirstDocument
While Not ( doc Is Nothing )
  Call rtitem.AppendDocLink( doc, db.Title )
  Call rtitem.AddTab( 1 )
  Call rtitem.AppendText( doc.Subject( 0 ) )
  Call rtitem.AddNewLine( 1 )
  Set doc = view.GetNextDocument( doc )
Wend
newDoc.Subject = _
"Here are links to all docs in the Boots folder"
newDoc.SendTo = "Lauri Nodwell"
Call newDoc.Send( False )

I also have this sample script that, when executed (in this case, via a button's click event), generates a mail memo to a particular recipient with an attached doclink that points back to the original document.
*Note: In order for this script to run properly, the original document must be saved before the script is executed.

Sub Click(Source As Button)
Dim workspace As New NotesUIWorkspace
Dim uidoc As NotesUIDocument
Dim doc As NotesDocument
Set uidoc = workspace.CurrentDocument
Set doc = uidoc.Document

Dim session As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim newDoc As NotesDocument
Dim rtitem As NotesRichTextItem
Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
Set newDoc = New NotesDocument( db )
Set rtitem = New NotesRichTextItem(newDoc, "Body" )
Call rtitem.AppendDocLink(doc, "TEST" )
newDoc.Subject = "Here is a link to the document"
newDoc.SendTo = "A Recipient"
newDoc.Send( True )

End Sub
