Note that this value isn't necessarily the current bid. For example, you can set a Max bid of $4.00, but the bid strategy might determine that you only need to bid up to $3.00 to achieve the bid strategy goal.

You can also override a bid strategy's Max CPC if you need to change bids quickly.Add this column to a report
