I still doubt if you can do in that way, as Click Performance Report 
returns only attribute-type fields, no metric fields.
That's partly why you see custom affinity appears in the Click Performance 
Report, but not in the Criteria Performance Report.
Originally, they gather data in a different way.
Let me check with engineering to find more.

What do you mean? We've compared result from script and API: it's the same 
> except lines with custom affinity.

To be clear, do you compare the result from *script* with *API* or do you 
compare the result from *Click Performance Report* with *Criteria 
Performance Report*?
If the former (you run the same report type, but from script and from API), 
could you please send me the result and AWQL?
I need to use that information to pass to engineering so that we can see 
what happens.

I've already contacted engineering about this for more clarification.
So far, if you mean the results from click performance report and criteria 
performance report are different, it doesn't look like an issue to fix.
That works as intended.

Cheers,
Thanet, AdWords API Team
