hi richybuk,

 

Welcome to the community.

 

It sounds to me like you are tring to edit an adwords express ad from inside the AdWords interface.

 

You need to log into google.com/awexpress

 

From there you will be able to disable the ads. Once disabled in there they will show as paused in teh AdWords interface.


I hope this helps you

Hi richybuk,

 

I am agreed with purefuzz, maybe this is a problem between AdWords and AdWords Express. Kindly review following links:

Hi,

 

I have the same issue with one of my campaigns. I can't edit it in any way (rename, unpause, change the daily cost limit...).

 

But when I try to go to Adwords Express I'm told it doesn't run in my country...

 

So I don't think your answer is right for me.

 

Anyone got any other ideas?

 

Thanks.

 

Matt

I am having the same problem. I am trying to change the end date of the ad and it says it cannot be modified in AdWords, yet in Adwords Express there is no place to modify the end date of the ad.

Hi Muddles,

 

Welcome to the community.

 

As far as I'm aware you can only disable them, not set end dates like you can in AdWords.

 

You could either set a reminder in your calendar for them or just turn it off.

This is the problem. My end date for my ad is in the next few days and I would like to extend it without having to go through the whole process of making a new ad. But in AdWords,when I try to change the end date, it states that I cannot modify the end date in Ad Words. FYI, I made the orginial ad in AdWords.

Hi Muddles,

 

I don't think you're the only one having this issue. comfort posted about this issue and how they got around it here

 

It seems you may be close to your set monthly budget and can reset it by going to manage your ads and saving it again to keep them running. I'm not sure about it but it's worth a try.

 

Let us know how you get on.

Actually, that didn't help at all. The only reason I went to Adwords Express is because so many forums and responses to the "This campaign and its contents cannot be modified in AdWords" says to go to Adwords Express. I actually made the ad in Adwords, and when I did, I did set a start and end date of the ad. At the time it was my first Google Ad, so I wasn't sure if I wanted it to go on continuously. So, I set and end date. I received notice that it is ending soon and wanted to continue the ad without having to go through the process of making a new ad. But when I clikc on the Ad settings, end date and try to change the end date to a different date or to "none," I receive the message "This campaign and its contents cannot be modified in AdWords." If I make the ad in AdWords, and want to modify it, where do I do this?

I am having similar issues. I found my ad in Express but, am unable to make any edits other than content.
