Money Fields in Reports

In Google Ads, the Money field types are returned in micro currency units (i.e. multiplied by 1,000,000). For example: 123 (yen), will be turned into 123,000,000 (123 x 1,000,000).
Within trocco, the Money field is treated as a normal unit by internally dividing the value (1/1,000,000), i.e. the target field will be loaded as 123.
For more information, please refer to the following Google Ads documentation.
