I've attempted to edit the content of a Disapproved ad in my AdWords->Campaigns, by hovering on the ad and clicking the pencil icon.  After making changes, I click on "Save" and get the error message "This campaign and its contents cannot be modified in AdWords."  Whaaaaat???

Hi jdallas541,


Sounds like you have an AdWords Express (campaign name starts with AX) or a Google Places campaign. You'll need to go to the account where you created the campaign to change it.


Best of Luck!
