You can download an executive report from the report manager or when viewing the report on the web. The available file formats for viewing and downloading the reports are:

When you open a report in the .xlsx format, you'll see a spreadsheet with one tab for each page in the report. These tabs contain the charts that were created in Search Ads 360. The spreadsheet contains one additional tab named (Data) which contains the data that is represented in the charts. You can modify the data on this tab, and the corresponding chart will update as well.
