Error message: “This campaign and its contents could not be modified in Adwords.” Help!

Hi,

 

I need help with our Adwords Campaign. I received an email saying “We want to remind you that some of your AdWords ads will soon stop running because one or more of your campaigns is nearing the end dates you established….”

 

I followed the instructions in the email but was unable to extend our campaign because of an error message saying “This campaign and its contents could not be modified in Adwords.”

 

I originally set up our Ad through Adwords Express, but I got the email from Adwords. Anyone know what I should do?

Hi cservice, if you originally set up in Express, then you must do any edits in Express.  Please use the Express URL to log in and go to your account:

 

http://www.google.com/adwords/express/

 

I'm interested that you say the email "came from Adwords".  Does this mean one or more links within the email sent you to the main Adwords program, not Express?

 

Jon
