Hi there, 

 

Thnaks for your question. 

 

A promoted video ad is basically an ad that promotes your video on YouTube and encourages users to view your video.

 

The issue here could be that your Excel sheet is a little malformed. As you can see here, Editor has pretty specific requirements for Promoted Video campaigns:

If you don't upload the file with those exact column headers, Editor won't know what to do, so it will end up not importing columns it's confused about.

 

If you are looking to use promoted videos I would advise you to use AdWords for Video. For more information on AdWords for Video check out the link below:

Hope this help.
