Convert orphaned doc back to child doc

I have some (2000) orphaned documents that I need to make into child documents of their respective parent docs again. I've created a button to change the value in the $REF field to the unique id of the respective parent document but the documents still do not appear in the view as a response doc like the other children are. How can I convert an orphaned doc back into a child doc? I'm not very skilled in LotusScript. Thanks for your help!
You've got it with the $Ref field. I can only imagine that perhaps your view is not setup to show response documents in a hierarchy. It must be the UNIVERSAL ID if you are working in LotusScript, or the @Text(@DocumentUniqueID)of the parent document. If you don't pass the func to @Text, you will get a doclink.
