How can I create ad groups with a CSV upload?

I have been trying to add approx 600 different ads (different headlines, different urls and different keywords) using a CSV upload. It seems the easiest way to do this (please let me know if there are better ways) is by creating 600 different ad groups and then an ad for each with the different inputs.

Obviously it would take too long to do this manually, can I do it using a CSV upload? I tried, but it keeps telling me there is an error as none of the ad groups I list exist (which makes sense as I'm trying to create them).

How should I proceed?

Alternatively, if there is a way of having a dynamic headline on the ad based on the title of each final url that would solve all my problems!


Thanks Smiley Happy

There are 2 ways to upload CSV. Bulk Upload feature ( & Using AdWords Editor. 

It will be difficult to understand whats wrong unless you post exact error.

Thanks for your reply.


My question about the csv upload feature was whether it is possible to create new ad groups in via bulk upload? Or may existing ones just be edited this way?


I'm trying to get my head around Dynamic Text Ads right now, will let you know how I get on. Many thanks!
