Hi Manish, thanks for the tip but it does not seem to work. All columns seem to be filled with values except of the Estim colum. There are no values displayed.

I have done the clocking manually without the help of Org-Mode. The values in my case are actually no estimates but rather the clocked values. Now I want to sum them up to see how many hours I have spent on the project.
