Ms-Project :Repeating tasks calculating duration incorrectly

When I set up a repeating task, the total duration appears to be a calculation of all working days between the first date of task and the date of the final repeat. For instance, if I set up a task for the first Monday
of each weekly and want to have it repeat for 9 occurences, the duration pops up
as
81 days but the total
working
 days is only 9 days not the 81 days.How do I set this up so Project accurately calculates working days?

That is odd. Can you post a sanitized screen of the recurring Task Information form?

After rereading your question, I think that you are confused on how projects are tracked. The duration of project is correct as it won't be completed until the last day.

If you add resources (people) and assign a resource to this task, you will see that it calculates 8 hrs (standard work day) for each and that the total work for the resource is 72 hours.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You could also add in the field "Remaining Work" to your Gantt chart to see how much work is remaining instead of duration.
