If you want to edit the rows in the file to modify the information about each
campaign, without changing the dimensions included, you can edit it as a Microsoft
Excel file, adding your own data to each existing column, and save it. Omit the data
in any columns you will not use, but do not remove the heading. This is the easiest
way to modify the campaigns.csv file, and does not require any
additional configuration of custom reports or dimensions. Users who have not
licensed Custom Reporting can use this method to generate the full set of Campaigns
reports. However, if you leave some columns blank, the corresponding reports may
contain columns with no data.
If you want to change the dimensions that are included in your campaigns report,
you can edit the heading row.
Navigate to the installation
Create a backup copy of the campaigns.csv file and rename it.
Edit the campaigns.csv file by
deleting any dimensions in the heading row that you do not want to include in
your Campaigns reports. For example, if you want to eliminate the Marketing
Activity, Marketing Program, Partner, and Placement dimensions, edit the
standard heading row:
Channel,Marketing Activity,Marketing Program,Offer,Partner,Placement
so it reads as follows:
Do not delete any of the commas that delimit the
fields. Do not re-order the columns in the file. Deleting the comma
delimiters or reordering the fields results in an incomplete
analysis or inaccurate data.
Make a copy of the Most Recent Campaign (drilldown) dimension and
edit it to remove the levels you removed from the translation file.
Make a copy of the campaigns custom report and edit it to use the
new version of the Most Recent Campaign (drilldown) dimension.

(drilldown) dimension. Preconfigured custom reports that rely on this drilldown
