Campaign cost data shows uploaded, ad data doesn't show up in reports

I'm trying to upload LinkedIn campaign data into GA.

Have fields for impressions/clicks/cost/ad content/campaign and date.

 

In the 'Manage Upload' section, it shows as uploaded.

However, when I create custom reports, ad related data remains missing.

Campaign was from back in Aug 2016 and uploaded was first attempted last month.

 

Any help with what's wrong?

 

I tried uploading another file for October data today - same issue. Upload shows as completed but no data in reports.

 

Thanks.

Hello Adil, 

 

to assign your imported values to something you need to fill in "key" columns into the sheet you upload. 
For cost data this is source / medium.

Hi Mark, The god ol' wait for a while method worked. 

As the file size was around 8 KB, I was expecting to see results in GA immediately. Waited for 24 hours and it worked.
