I have a hot wire feeding into a work box. I have another wire leaving the work box ending at a switch. A third wire leaves the work box and ends at a light. My question is, how should I connect the wires to complete the circuit properly?
Black source to switch, then use the white from the switch, carrying hot, to the work box connecting to the black going to the light. If that is correct, what would I do with the white from the light?

Why don’t you just leave the switch and take it to the light…..that’s all you need. Just remember your neutral needs to return home. that’s the white,the way you are planning it now. So what I’m saying is Box, Switch, Then Light. Then just follow colors.
