How many wires are there in this box to work with. If you answer "two, one black and one white", then I'm going to tell you that this job is impossible -- there is no way to wire it. If you answer "four, two black and two white" (or any other answer), then we'll provide further information based on your answer.

Thanks for your reply. I have like you thought a impossible solution..Just 2 wires into box. Have to figure out how to run another live set to it.

Thanks for the reply.

As John said under the current existing wiring it can't be done, if only 2 wires at the switch location, the source of power is at the the fixture and there is no neutral wire at the switch location.

You need an unswitched source for of power / hot & neutral.
