Problem with the sample CSV sheet for Adwords Editor

Hi Everyone,


I wanted to create 1 campaign with 80 ad groups and natural ad words editor and a spreadsheet was going to help me finish the job fast. NO . Took me time to understand that the sample csv file was not that helpful.



The link :


Then i found out that by creating a campaign with one adgroup and then exporting the .csv file from adwords editor will make the job easier.  


had to do some serious editing and copy paste but at the end the job was much faster by this way.


The format of the sample csv file has issues. Maybe the reason is all these latest updates and Googlers should definitely have a look on it.


Please tell me what possible went wrong and it didnt work for me ?

Hi George,

Can you elaborate on the kind of issues you ran into? Did you get sort of error when you tried to upload the file?

Also, where did you find the link to this spreadsheet? Was it included in Help Center material?
