Why didn’t it show up?
My mom, her parents and their parents were born in Greece, but when I took an ancestry DNA test it doesn’t show up as any Greek or Balkan for me?

DNA tests offered by Ancestry, MyHeritage, 23andMe, etc test for genetic markers commonly found in various human populations. Each company maintains their own database, and your results are subject to the company's database. You didn't say anything about your father's ancestry (if known), so it is entirely possible that you inherited more of the genetic markers from his side of the family. Also, it helps to know your history. Boundaries and borders have changed throughout history and Europeans intermingled with each other all the time.

DNA tests are sold to entertain you nothing more

Because your DNA isn't determined by where you were born. You inherit it from your parents: 23 chromosomes from your biological father, 23 chromosomes plus mitochondrial from your biological mother
Or because not enough people in your mothers greek family were in the company's database yet
