Unable to Show More than One Metric in Graph

I am trying to do a simple Graph showing Clicks and Impressions. 

 

I select both metrics and my graph shows two lines but only one of those lines will reflect actual data. The other will just show a line across the zero range. 

 

When I change the order of the metrics, the new top metric will then show but the previous data line will drop to zero. 

 

What do I need to do to get this rectified?

You are very likely experiencing an axis or scale issue.

I am guessing that you have a very high number of impressions compared to clicks?

Hi Tim,

 

If you go to the style section, and to series #2, you can set the second metric to the Right Axis. This will show clicks on a secondary axis to impressions, and allow you to see the variation in that metric.

The good old Google Analytics dashboard did this in a much simpler way. So far there's nothing I've discovered about Data Studio that improves on the GA dashboard system, unless you really enjoy adding colour to your reports.
