Hi Paul,

in analytics go to Matched Search Queries: Aquisition>adwords>matched seach queries.

or in adwords. get to keyword level, click Details>Search Term All.


Hope this Helps

Hi Jack,

Thanks for your contribution mate. I have however since learned that it can't be done - real pity!

All the best!
