Is there a way to use the org mode feature of clockin as an attendance
register?  I'd simply like to record the time I punch in and out and
have org mode give the hours for all the days in the week/month.

Is there a way to do it without creating a TODO item everyday in the
.org file?

From the manual:

`C-c C-x C-r' 
     Insert a dynamic block (*note Dynamic blocks::) containing
     a clock report as an org-mode table into the current file.

See (info "(Org)Clocking work time") for details.

You may find the timeclock.el module (included with Emacs) easier for this
kind of tracking.  And Ledger (http://ledger.sf.net) will make it possible to
create all kinds of summary reports and such from your timelog.

I just stumble upon this error:

"The CLOCK property can not yet be set with `org-entry-put'"

I assume there is a plan for setting the CLOCK property directly
(through org-clock-in/out), and I guess both `org-clock-sum' and
`org-clock-report' will be able to use this information.

PS: I found the plan for the CLOCK property while trying to write a
function to merge all those CLOCK lines. Here it is, in case someone
wants to store dormant clocking info:


(defun bzg-org-merge-clocks nil
  "Sum clocking information for the current subtree and store it
as a :Clock: property."
  (interactive)
  (org-clock-sum)
  (save-excursion
    (org-back-to-heading)
    (while (re-search-forward 
	    (concat "^[ \t]*" org-clock-string ".*$")
	    (save-excursion (outline-next-heading) (point)) t)
      (replace-match ""))
    (org-back-to-heading)
    (let ((minutes (get-text-property (point) :org-clock-minutes))
	  (elapsed (string-to-number (org-entry-get (point) "Clock"))))
      (org-entry-put (point) "Clock" 
		     (number-to-string (+ minutes elapsed))))))
