    Reports Question, Understanding Them
    I'm trying to figure out how to match them up but can't. Let's say for this month.

    I click Reports, By Day and create a Month To Date Report and get a day by day like:

    7/1/08
    7/2/08
    7/3/08
    7/4/08
    7/5/08
    7/6/08
    7/7/08
    7/8/08

    with impressions, click, earnings, epc

    Now if i run a Transaction Download report for the month, I download the report, open it up and it has transaction date and posting date. So from the first method above, let's say 7/5, that is supposed to match what in the Transaction Download report?

    Ah, I think I figured it out. When you run a Transaction Download report the first date is supposed to be the transaction date followed by the posting date but the way it's setup it's like

    7/1/08 7/2/08 but the real transaction date and time is over here
    7/2/08 7/3/08 for this one it could be 6/23 3:34 PM or something
    7/3/08 7/4/08

    Alright still confused with these reports. Besides the first date of the Transaction Download report, not being the actual transaction date when it should be, see example in last post. Just running a Transaction Download Report today and one sale will look like:

    7/11/08 7/12/08 and the real tranasction date which is listed over here could be 7/5 3:34 PM or something

    But then I can click Reports, By Day, set the Report Filters for Month To Date and it'll show your earnings per day but it doesn't look like those days are updating. With the example I just used the report for 7/5, looks like it's staying the same, even if I see new sales coming in throughout the month.

    So for those that are doing some sales, how do you add the numbers up? Are the reports just all screwed up or am I doing something wrong? Thanks for any help.

    Ahhhhhh, ok finally figured it out. I was noticing it looked like what I was getting paid was about half of what I thought I should be. It's because in the Transaction Download Reports I was adding up Winning Bid (Revenue) when:

    "For instance, ACRU amount = 1, payout could be 1x$25 = $25
    Or Winning Bid (revenue) amount = $2.20; payout could be $2.20x50%= $1.10"

    So Winning Bid (Revenue) , I get half of that. With CJ, what you saw is what you got.

    So this changes some things for me.
