Cannot enable deleted placements

Hi, not sure how to go about this. I have a bunch of deleted placements for my display campaign. However when I try to enable them I get this error message. Have no scripts running and Change History only shows the excluded placements, not the deleted ones. Does anyone have experience with this?

 

Googling my problem did not yield results. So pasting the error code here for future searchers Smiley Wink

"Your change was not applicable to any of the selected rows. No changes have been made."

Under targeting, I had two websites where I wanted my ads to appear. So I placed those in the Placement targeting. Forgot to tick the option "Bid only" as "Target and Bid" restricts placing ads only on those I've provided.

Hi Mark

Have you tried Clicking the "Add targeting" drop-down menu and select "Placements."? Type in the name or URL of the placement where you'd like the ads in this ad group to show. click the Add multiple placements at once link at the bottom of the box and add the placements.

Do let me know whether it is solving your problem or not.

Thanks

Have you excluded the placement or deleted it?
If deleted, you'll have to add it manual y or you may try using the editor

Weird... never deleted any placement. I do have some excluded. Having a look in the editor now and will report back later.

Hi Aritra, solved it by removing 2 websites I had included to be placement targeted. Did not know it would delete all other automatic targeting.
