Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
A quick update, as I see several threads on this subject.
I'm really sorry to hear about these problems with the new Reports features. Engineering is aware of the problem, and working hard to correct it. Hopefully, this will have been resolved for many of you already.
Mine is stuck at pending, and not only that, but all of my ads have stopped showing.
I am pretty sure that, technically, there can be no connection between delayed reports, and ads not showing. A preliminary 'ping' of the tech folks confirms this, so this is most likely a coincidence - but I'll certainly keep my ear to the ground.
As always, thanks for your patience - and I will post again when I know more.
Paitently waiting ... go engineers go
Dear Google AdWords Advertiser,
Thank you for advertising with Google AdWords. We were unable to process the AdWords report you requested. This may be the result of a temporary system error. Please resubmit your request.
Seem to be stuck in pending mode again today. :(
Do you know more by now AWA..?
I had understood the pending report issue to have been resolved - and this is the first I'm hearing of a 'relapse'.
I'll certainly ping the technical team - and report back when I know more.
BTW, I came in sort of early this morning to get some WebmasterWorld posting done before I am away from the office for half a day. So it'll probably be several hours before I post with an update.
Oh, and one other really important thing relating to the Report Center, that seems to have been misunderstood. I've noticed that several folks have written that the ability to have reports emailed to them is now gone, and this is not actually the case.
You can still set up to have reports emailed to you in the Download Center / Email Preferences section.
So, you first choose the report that you want to run - and then on the page on which you define the parameters of the report, look down at the bottom of that page for a link that says [edit email preferences].
When you click on that link, look near the bottom of the following page, where it will say "Include report as email attachment in (.csv .html .tsv .xml) format." You will also see the following note:
"Note: All files are sent in Zip format. Zipped files larger than 2MB cannot be sent as an attachment. However, you will receive a report notification, and you can download those reports from your Download Center."
Sorry that I didn 't respond earlier with specific details regarding emailed reports.
