Wiring switch and outlet with same power source.

Hello

I'm trying not to wire an outlet to a switch using separate boxes. I do not want the outlet switched. The power source is coming rom ththe switch.

Thank you for your help.

Do you have two black wires on the switch and two or more whites connected only to each other or just a black and white wire on the switch?

I don't know how it was wired before as my companion removed the wires before the workmen came. Two blacks in switch box. One from power source and the other from receptacle. Two whites together in switch box. One from power source and the other from outlet receptacle below.

I don't know how to wire the blacks so that the light switch doesn't have to be on to operate the outlet.

. 😊
