So I'm installing a new outlet in my home. There's an existing Romex cable that goes up the wall into my attic above the new outlet. When I was stripping the wire to go in the box, I accidentally severed the neutral white wire.
I was able to get the sheathed wire into the junction box by about an inch and reattach the white wire with a twist-on cap inside the box. Is this OK or do I need to replace the entire cable?
