My Client Center Reporting Issue: Broad Match Modifiers

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

When I run a custom MCC client report, the resulting .csv replaces any broad match modifier keywords with "#NAME?" 

 

Any idea why this happens? Anything I can do to fix it? 

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi Dynamics Online,

I'm guessing you are importing the .csv file to Excel. The plus sign makes Excel think it is formula and that the keyword is a named range. Place a quote (single of double) in front of the BMM keyword before importing. Excel will treat that as a string.

Best of Luck!

That makes perfect sense! The only issue now is to figure out where I can place the quote in front of the BMM keyword before creating the .csv export. If I do that do the keyword within AdWords, that would disable it's BMM powers, wouldn't it?
