How to upload keyword changes using a spreadsheet

[ Edited ]

I copied a campaign.

I renamed it to "ABC" campaign

I downloaded the key words for that campaign as a spreadsheet and changed them all.

I uploaded the spreadsheet and said there no success whatsoever.  0 changes.  ANd yet I changed every keyword field.

 

Is there a STEP BY STEP instruction for doing this procedure?

When making changes like this I highly recommend using Adwords Editor. You can edit the keywords inside the editor or do a an export and edit what is exported then upload back into the Adwords Editor software.

Adwords was designed to accept CSV and XLS files for uploading natively.
I want to upload CSV and XLS files.
