sorry again but I've some privacy issues in my company and really can't 
provide the ids (I know, it's a really weird thing but it's not my 
decision)... Just a question: are you able to download a KeywordText with 
square brackets with Python API v201607 ? The issue is not only for one 
AdGroup and one Keyword, but it always happens: I manage 100 campaigns, 
thousands of keywords and I've never seen a KeywordText with square 
I've just read this topic 
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/adwords-api/25LHtXiFjRk which is 
from 2009, and I wonder if the situation is still the same (i.e. you don't 
have this data stored) or, as Joyce Lava answered in this topic, with Java 
it's actually possible to download brackets.
Thanks again!

Best regards
