// AdWords Script: Check and set keyword bids for stacked (tiered) bid strategy
// -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Copyright 2017 Optmyzr Inc., All Rights Reserved
//
// This script helps you compare bids for the same keyword in multiple match types
// It can output just keywords for which a less restrictive match type has equal or higher bids (mode 1)
// or it can output all keywords so you can see the bids by match type (mode 2)
//
// New bids can be generated and uploaded with the spreadsheet through Bulk Uploads. The file is NOT compatible with AdWords Editor.
//
// The script only checks active keywords with impressions during the selected date range.
