GeographicPerformanceReportRequest Data Object - Reporting
Defines a geographic performance report request. Use this report to see where your traffic is coming from: the physical location of the people searching for your ad or the locations people are searching for. You can then validate whether your location targeting strategy is successful and identify opportunities to improve.
You can request impressions, clicks, spend, and average cost-per-click for each ad group, organized into columns that show the location used to serve ads.
To request a report of this type, pass this object to the SubmitGenerateReport operation.

|Aggregation||The type of aggregation to use to aggregate the report data. For example, you can aggregate the report data by day or week, or request a summary report.
The default is Summary.
The Time element specifies the time period to use for the aggregation.
|Columns||The list of attributes and performance statistics to include in the report. The report will include the columns in the order that you specify them.||GeographicPerformanceReportColumn array|
|Filter||The filter information to use to filter the report data.||GeographicPerformanceReportFilter|
|Scope||The entity scope of the report.
Use this element to limit the report data to specific accounts, ad groups, or campaigns.
|Time||The time period to use for the report. You can specify a custom date range or select a predefined date range, for example, Today or ThisWeek.
For a list of the time periods that you can specify for each aggregation type, see Aggregation and Time.
You can set the time zone within the ReportTime object, which helps you accurately scope data for the requested time period.
If you do not choose a time zone, the Reporting service uses PacificTimeUSCanadaTijuana by default.
Inherited Elements from ReportRequest
The GeographicPerformanceReportRequest object derives from the ReportRequest object, and inherits the following elements. The descriptions below are specific to GeographicPerformanceReportRequest, and might not apply to other objects that inherit the same elements from the ReportRequest object.
|ExcludeColumnHeaders||Determines whether or not the downloaded report should contain header descriptions for each column. The report column header matches the requested column name e.g. Impressions and Clicks.
Set this property true if you want the report column headers excluded from the downloaded report. The default value is false.
|ExcludeReportFooter||Determines whether or not the downloaded report should contain footer metadata such as Microsoft copyright (@2017 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.).
Set this property true if you want the report footer metadata excluded from the downloaded report. The default value is false.
|ExcludeReportHeader||Determines whether or not the downloaded report should contain header metadata such as report name, date range, and aggregation.
Set this property true if you want the report header metadata excluded from the downloaded report. The default value is false.
|Format||The format of the report data. For example, you can request the data in comma-separated values (Csv) format or tab-separated values (Tsv) format.
The default value is Csv.
All downloaded files are ZIP compressed.
|Language||The language to use to generate the report headers and columns.
The default is English.
|ReportName||The name of the report. The name is included in the report header. If you do not specify a report name, the system generates a name in the form, ReportType-ReportDateTime.
The maximum length of the report name is 200.
|ReturnOnlyCompleteData||Determines whether you want the service to generate the report only if all the data has been processed and is available.
If True, the request fails if the system has not finished processing all the data based on the aggregation, scope, and time period values that you specify. However, if False, the request succeeds but the report will contain only the data that the system has finished processing at the time of the request (there is no indication as to whether the data is complete). The default is False.
When a user clicks an ad, it can take from three to four hours for the system to process the click and make it available for reporting. For more information, see Determining When the Books Close.
Because you cannot retrieve complete data for today, you must set this element to False if the end date of the custom date range specified in the Time element of the derived report object is set to today, or if you specify one of the following predefined time values:
