    import java.awt.FlowLayout;
    import java.awt.event.ActionListener;
    import java.awt.event.ActionEvent;
    import java.util.Date;
    import java.text.DateFormat;
    import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
    import java.sql.*;
    import javax.swing.*;
    import javax.swing.JFrame;
    import javax.swing.JButton;
    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
     
     
     
    public class Gui extends JFrame
    {
    	private JComboBox box;
    	private JButton reg;
     
     
     
    	private static String[] filename = {"Sign In", "Sign Out", "Break In", "Break Out", 
    		"Lunch In", "Lunch Out"};
     
     
     
     
    	public Gui ()
    	{
    		super("CAW Time Clock");
    		setLayout(new FlowLayout());
     
    		DateFormat dateFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm:");
     
     
     
    		box = new JComboBox(filename);
    		reg = new JButton("Submit");
     
    		try {	//Connecting the driver
    				Class.forName("net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver");
    				Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection ("jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://DATASERVER1:1433/Time_Log_CSR");
    				//Inserting the statement to the database
    				Statement statement = conn.createStatement();
    				statement.executeUpdate(" INSERT INTO TimeLog ( LogDate, Name, LogReason, TimeInOrOut)" 
    						+ "VALUES (null, washington, null, null)");
     
    		}
    		catch ( Exception e ) 
    		{
    			e.printStackTrace();
    		}
     
     
     
     
    		add(box);
    		add(reg);
     
    		//get current date time with Date()
    		Date date = new Date();
    		System.out.println(dateFormat.format(date));
     
     
     
     
    		HandlerClass handler = new HandlerClass();
    		reg.addActionListener(handler);
     
    	}
     
    	private class HandlerClass implements ActionListener
    	{
    		public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent event)
    		{
    			JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, String.format(" Your Time has been recored", event.getActionCommand()));
    		}
    	}

    I cant really see why it wouldnt work just by looking at your code, however you should make sure you close your resources after use, preferably in a finally block.
