How to display a Lotus Notes Document URL in a view

URL
I would like to create a view that lists some documents and includes the URL link to those documents as a text field.  Is there any way to achieve this?

Note: I am a user with no access to any advanced options such as agents but with a good working knowledge of various commands and functions.


--------------------

Edit: 11/04/2014

My objective is to create a list of documents with the relevent URL so that I can provide a list of those documents with the URLs for input into another database.

The list I want to produce would be like follows
Doc #		Doc Name	Doc URL
1		Procedure A	notes://gbptap01/80256DDD005523FB/F07B71CD...
2		Procedure B	notes://gbptap01/80256DDD005523FB/F0723745...
3		Procedure C	notes://gbptap01/80256DDD005523FB/F0723426...
4		Procedure D	notes://gbptap01/80256DDD005523FB/F0722CD1...
5		Procedure E	notes://gbptap01/80256DDD005523FB/F07B7245...
I just need to know how to get the URL into the column, I had assumed there would be an @ Function of some kind to do so (like @Created gives the creation date) but I can't find on in the help.

    If you don't want to let Domino automatically generate the urls for you, then just generate the text string yourself - concatenate the host, database, view, etc.  You can use @DocumentUniqueID for the final 32 characters.

    You can use formula option in the column of the view where you want to show the url.
    Here you can use variable(s) along with field name to show the format of url for documents. for example in your query. If you have a field in your formTx_URL which stores the url in specific format then  you can use :
    path:="notes://";
    path+tx_URL;

    this way you can apply the formula to show the url; refer the link for th format of the url :http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/dominowiki.nsf/dx/notes-urls
