Can't link my analytics account with Adwords?

Hi all,  I'm having difficulties linking adwords with analytics. When I follow the instructions and access analytics from the Adwords menu, then press Admin, then data sources there is no Adwords account listed. I've followed all of the guidelines, but no joy!

 

When I get to the page there's a message that says:

 

Link your AdWords and Analytics accounts

To link your AdWords account, please access this page via the Google Analytics option under the Tools & Analysis tab in Adwords.

 

Umm, yeah - that's what I just did!

 

Can anyone advise what I might be doing wrong?

HI ChasingSummer,

 

Can you please verify that the same Adwords google account (email address) has admin access to the Analytics Account that you are attempting the link with?

Same thing happens to me today. I can't link my google adwords to analytics. Any idea why?

 

What I also noticed is that the Google Analytics under Tools and Analysis opens up the whole Google Analytics page template before it uses the template of the Google Adwords.

And to add, Google Analytics is no longer opening inside Google Adwords. It seems it is opening to a new page.
