I'm using emacs on Windows 7.
I have this file called temp.org, where I log all my project information.
I have clock entries project wise and I also had the clock table report. After the update that happened today (7-Sep-2017), I'm unable to update the clock table report using C-c C-c.

This is the message that is being displayed when I press C-c C-x C-r

Before first headline at position 79 in buffer temp.org

I don't know what is wrong as I have not changed anything myself. In my .emacs file I had the following entry - but I commented it out to see if that was causing the problem.

;; Display the org clock sum in terms of hours and not in units of days 
;;(setq org-time-clocksum-format (quote (:hours "%d" :require-hours t :minutes ":%02d" :require-minutes t)))

As expected that did not solve the problem.
This is my .emacs file for reference.

This is how it looked before

You can only use the subtree scope if you're in a headline.

Out of a headline you could use :scope file or file-with-archives.

  • But it was working before. I'll try adding a headline and top and revert – Prasanna Sep 11 '17 at 17:14
  • I would have commented on your accepted answer but I don't have enough sx points. There is no 'sub tree' scope, see orgmode.org/manual/The-clock-table.html Since you pass an invalid scope (you could use foobar as well) it just uses the current buffer. For subtree you need to be in a headline. – dakra Sep 14 '17 at 9:06

    You are right my friend. I selected your answer and deleted my answer. Thank you for taking the time to cite the reference from the manual. Now you have enough points to do what you like! Cheers! – Prasanna Sep 14 '17 at 11:29
