Data import not working

Hi All

I have tried data import several times and every time it has not worked the way its supposed to work. Here is my latest issue.

Here is my data import schema ga:dimension10,ga:dimension9,ga:dimension8,ga:dimension7

Here is my uploaded data

ga:dimension10

ga:dimension9

ga:dimension8

ga:dimension7

172

Value9

Value8

Value7

171

Value9

Value8

Value7

170

Value9

Value8

Value7

163

Value9

Value8

 

 

I have confirmed that values for key (ga:dimension10) exist in GA account

After data upload I waited for more the 3 days but nothing appears in reporting.

This is just one of the issues I have had with data upload, has any one successfully made data import work?

 

I have observed similar issues with my google analytics premium account as well.

Facing this issue for a  very long time now with no solution in sight. Any one knows whats wrong here?

 

Regards

Nik

You might be aware data import wont work retroactively.

 

It will only work moving forward once the configurations are done.

Hi Nik,

Do you use Universal Analytics (analytics.js) code here?

Did you use a comma-separated CSV file as given in [1]?

Did you use a custom dimension or a custom metric for your "values"?

I am performing query time data import so it will work for historical data as well.

HI Nik,

hard to tell ... I assume that you defined the custom dimensions in Analytics initially. And I don't think using ga:dimension09 instead of ga:dimension9 would make any difference. Perhaps any special characters and/or misleading character coding in your CSV file?
