Issue with experiments in Adwords editor

[ Edited ]

Editor doesn't yet have the ability to create an experiment, but it does recognize a campaign that is running one.

 

However, when I try to bulk create control and experiment ads (each landing on a different page) it cannot differentiate them & gives an error.

 

I want to test 2 variations of the same ad with differing landing pages across 100+ ads so I don't want to have to manuallycopy,change status, and change landing url for each. 

 

Is there something innocuous on the ads that I can change that would differentiate the two (control/experiment) from eachother to satisfy the editor?

Good morning.

 

If you go to the Tools > Settings menu item in AdWords Editor, and look on the General tab, you will find a place to change the default settings.

 

Select the Create new ad if display URL or destination URL is different option and the program will load your imported ads as new instead of overwriting your original ads.
