Issue linking AdWords and Analytics accounts

A few years ago a client gave me standard access to view their account. I left the agency I was with, but for some reason that account is "controlling" my account; it's the only one that shows up when I click "Account access" in Adwords. Meanwhile, I can't link any of my Adwords and Analytics accounts. (Everything is grayed out under "Linked Accounts >Google Analytics") I can provide screen shots, whatever, but need to be able to do this so I can track effectiveness. Thanks!

I have a some questions, which might be able to help us all sort this out:

 

How many AdWords and analytics accounts do you have access to through your personal gmail account?

What level of access do you have for both the AdWords and analytics accounts?

How many accounts do you have to use some other gmail account to access?

Do you still need any level of access to the old client account from the former agency?

Hey Tom - thanks for the reply. I dug deeper and figured out that a client
had added me to their account, and by removing me I'm now free. Pain in the
neck, but it only happened after one day of advertising, so all is ok.

Thanks so much!

Hey Tom, it was a fail on my end - my access level on the client's account wasn't enough to allow me to link these, so I had the client delete me.

 

Thanks!
