Not valid code format Google Analytics

I am trying to implement Google Analytics and my code is in this format:

“UA-#######”
and the action expects “UA-#######-#”

Anybody run into this problem?
Any help really appreciated.

Thanks,
Emilio

The code that Google Analytics gives you is in the right format. If you goto your Main Page (in GA) where it lists the site(s) that you have being tracked and click “Edit” under the one you want the code from. In the top right you’ll see a link that says, “Check Status.” Click that and then look down in the box at the bottom with the code that stars with "_uacct=“UA-1234567-8”

That’s the number code you put into the action.

Hope that helps.

Hi Emilio,

All Google’s documentation states that the ID will be in the three
block format, that doesn’t mean to say you are incorrect though.

Could you post the full code Google have given you (or send it to
supportATsoftpress.com if you don’t want to post it publicly) so we
can see if we need to fix the Action).

Many thanks,

That did it, but I found out the code was already there ??, I guess Google inserted it.

Thanks a lot for your help.
