I can't change any settings for my campaign or add a new campaign!

When I try to create a new ad group, I pick keywords and then Save ad group, but the page says to correct the errors below but I don't see where there are any errors.  The message "This campaign and its contents cannot be modified in AdWords" keeps coming up.  Where do I modify them?

Hello markhoriwch,

 

I think you are trying to make the changes in your Adwords Express Campaign.

 

Does your campaign looks like this “Places_Ads####”? If yes, then you need to login into Adwords Express and then make the limited changes which are possible. Refer to this for more details.

 

Hope that helps!
