Lightbulb Fan Wiring Question - 4 Pairs of wires

Hello All,

I have replaced several fans in the house with out any issues. This last one I am attempting to do the wiring is a little different. I have attached a picture as well. I have tested the wiring and I believe the ones marked switch and hot are correct. There are other lights and a fan in the room next that are on the same breaker and do not work unless this is wired correctly. I am guessing the pairs with a ? is for these other lights/fan. Sadly, I was not able to get a picture of how the fan was wired up previously. There is only one switch for this fan. I am just trying to figure out how to wire the fan in (it has the same standard black/blue/white/green as the other fans I installed.

If your cable labels are correct then this will work. The fan will function with the chains and the light will function with the switch.

Connect whites,except switch cable white, together and to the fan white.
Connect blacks ,except switch cable black, together with the fan black and the switch cable white.
connect the fan blue to the switch cable black.
