Recurring Hourly task showing as 1 day in Resource Usage


I am trying to insert a recurring daily task in a project plan.
The tasks is for 1 hour that occurs every day.
I add it to the Gaant chart and it has 1 hour duration but when i look at Resource Usage it shows as 8 huors.

Is there something im doing wrong?
I have attached screen shots of the issue.
The version I'm using is Project 2003

Thanks for any help.

just tried exactly what you did in Project 2010 and 2013 with the result as expexted - the resource is used by 1 hour per day across the recurring task.

I'll try to find a copy of Project 2003 to see if I can reproduce your issue. But I remember that Project 2003 did have issues with recurring tasks so it could well be that this is version dependent.

Thanks Thomas - much appreciated.

I think it's because Alex is assigned at the Summary level for 17.29 days over a 3 week period - ie: full time. Try moving the resource assignment to the individual hour tasks (select all of them and you can assign him/her in bulk) and take the assignment off the summary

- I think this was fixed after 2003
