Hi,

 

First and foremost,you have to have it set up correctly,

 

In adwords, under Account Accesss / Preferences / make sure "Adwords cost setting" are checked.

 

In Analytics click users, then profile settings.make sure 

AdWords Cost Source Settings

----->>>>  Apply cost sources 

is checked off.

Hello Curiouss, 

 

Plelase confirm me If I am wrong, 

you have adwords account with xyz@mail.com and analytics account with abc@mail.com. 

you should create analytics account with xyz@mail.com and link with abc@gmail.com. 

 1. Log in to your Analytics account using an xyz@mail.com that is listed as an administrator on the Analytics account.
   2. Click the Admin tab at the top right of any page in Analytics.
   3.Click the account to which you want to add an administrator.
   4. Click the Users tab.
   5. Click + New User.
   6. Enter the email address(abc@gmail.com) that you would like to add to the Analytics account.
   7. Select Administrator below the email address field.
   8. Click Create User to create the new user.
 
Then link with you adwords to analytics account. with xyz@mail.com. Go with this link, 
 
Hope it helps you.
