    She had me doing all kinds of jobs for her?

    Does 1 mean continuous action while 2 means one-time action? I rarely heard of 1, but my grammar book says the difference like what I said.

    1)She had me doing all kinds of jobs for her.
    2)She had me do all kinds of jobs for her.

    I see no reason to disagree with your grammar book on this occasion.
