Hi. I'm doing something I thought would be very straight forward. Just adding a switch to control an outlet I have in my workshop. My outlet tests fine - no error. However when I have the incoming hot wire go into the switch first, and another hot wire out of the switch to the plug (the neutral and ground are both connected only to the plug) I get a hot neutral reverse error.

I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Look at the source of the power to the switch. It could be reversed further upstream from the receptacle.
Measure voltage from white ground and black to ground in the switch box.
What reading do you get with the switch off?
