I had no idea of the org-datree-find-date-create, and the argument to org-clock-report cuts out a lot of my code. > Note that org-datetree-find-date has a slightly annoying interface, in > that you need to provide a list of three integers representing a > calendar date. Yes, that is a little awkward. What I did think of using was substrings to extract the date from the picker interface. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp (defun org-date-picker-to-list () (let* ((date-string (org-read-date)) (year (substring date-string 0 4)) (month (substring date-string 5 7)) (day (substring date-string 8 10))) (mapcar 'string-to-number (list month day year)))) #+END_SRC Does that look sensible? My two next things to tackle are 1. A hook to run the function when I run org-capture. 2. Changing the org-clock-report options in your function above, but not the defaults. For the second point, is there some trick to swap a global variable for the run of a function? The variable in this case would be org-clocktable-defaults. Thank you so much Richard. You've probably saved me days of going through the org-mode documentation and source.
