Do you save your AdWords API reports to a database? Do you have code that detects and skips header and summary rows? If the answer to these questions is "why yes, I do!", then you'll be happy to hear that in AdWords API v201409 you can modify your report requests so that the returned results will not include these rows.

Excluding the report header

Prior to v201409, the output of each AdWords report included a header that gave the name of the report and the date range in your predicates:

"KEYWORDS_PERFORMANCE_REPORT (Sep 21, 2014-Sep 27, 2014)"

If you do not want this row in your report results, include the new skipReportHeader HTTP header with a value of true.

Excluding the report summary

Similar to the header, each AdWords report for versions prior to v201409 returned a summary row with totals in its final row of output:

Total, --, --,44700

If you don't want this row in your report results, include the new skipReportSummary HTTP header with a value of true.

Note: If you do not include these headers or specify a value of false for both headers, your report results will include the header and summary rows, just as they did for prior versions of the AdWords API.
