Hi Experts,

 

I am trying to update an account`s ad to the expanded text ad format. However, each time I hit save, it gives me a notification that says "Cannot access removed ad" What are the possible reasons why I am not able to update the ad?

 

Looking forward to your responses Smiley Happy

Hi @Amolliah R

 

Have you tried just creating new ETAs from scratch instead of trying to update old ads?

I eventually did that although I never experienced issues updating the old ads

Yeah, that probably shouldn't occur. I've actually not tried editing any old ads.  I've been bulk uploading and using editor for most of my ETA work and they are all new ads so while I still can, we can measure performance between the two ad types. 

 

Keep us posed if you still see issues.
