One year back I used to get great assitance from the adwords support team, but they haven't maintained the same standard throughout the year and after that. Giving out false promises by saying they would be emailing with the apt clarification.............never happened for me during this past one year.
Recently I requested a clarification from the Adwords support team................they promised me assitance over email withing 24 hours............I didn't receive any support even after 70 hours... but I found out the answer for my question myself......necessity is the mother of invention :-)
I have furnished the chat script below ...read for youself...
