The power WHITE goes directly to the WHITE wire on the fixture............

The power BLACK attaches to the WHITE wire going to the switch......this white wire should be permanently marked BLACK (use a magic marker or tape) to indicate a switch leg...........

The BLACK wire from the switch is attaches to the fixture BLACK...........

Attach/connect all grounds to each other and any device and metal box..............

Explanation: The Black leg is ALWAYS switched.....the White leg goes directly to the fixture.............work safe.........get a book on simplified wiring......It's dangerous to just hook-up the wiring without a complete understanding and hope for the best..........doug
