    @Harsha vardhan Thiruveedula - Thanks for the feedback, and we'll update the error string and documentation to clarify. We do also require Impressions for this report in the Microsoft Advertising UI.

    Same issue with AgeGendeAudienceReport, in the documentation the Required Columns - AccountName, AdGroupName, AgeGroup, Gender, TimePeriod.
    But without Impressions it throw this exception.

    Best regards,
