Open Ground

How do I correct an open ground I have in a garage elect. outlet. The wiring is as such: from the sub panel to the first outlet (no open ground), all 3 wires connected ok, the second shows open ground and is hook up the same way from the first outles, all 3 wires, why an open ground????????

thanks tbortiz03

Exactly how did you connect the grounding wires in the first box.

Either it's not connected properly in the first receptacle box, the second receptacle or the wire is damaged in between the receptacles.
