Hi Paul,

It is possible. It might not show up due to low ad rank or low quality score of the keywords that ought to trigger the ad.

Is it the only ad in your ad group? Has it gathered at least a small number of impressions?

Correct; Approving an ad is a prerequisite to have the ad take part in an auction.

Mildaster is correct--an ad does need to be approved but that does not guarantee that the ad will win any ad auctions.

Yes Paul, it is possible, may be your ad copies are not relevant, means i think your ad copies have not keyword and also may be your keyword quality score is low or bidding is low...so please check out these point
