cieling fan w/light question

I am replacing a ceiling fan with a light? The light is controlled with the wall switch, and the fan is controlled by the pull chain on the fan itself. My problem is, the wire to the light is not receiving power any more. The fan wire(always hot) is working, but the wire from the switch to the light is not. I have continuity across the switch when it is on, and no continuity when the switch is off, which I believe is normal. Why am I not recieving power at the ceiling thru the switched wire? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks,
Walrilla

If you want us to spot what you did wrong, you'll have to first tell us what you did. Tell us all the wires that are present at the ceiling (all of them--not just the ones you may have used) and what you connected to what.

John,
Thank you so much for replying. A friend who is an electrician came over and spotted the problem. The previous owner had wired the ceiling fans wrong. They worked, but they were wrong. He sorted it all out, and everything is working correctly now. Thank you so much for your time. Sorry for bothering y'all.

Thanks,
Donny
