I've deleted my personal adWords account from my google account. but i still can't add a new one!

I get this error:: https://www.dropbox.com/s/vsfmf3g3gzlcnc3/Screen%20shot%202013-01-02%20at%204.30.10%20PM.png

 

So:

1. I canceled / deleted my existing adWords account that i made ages ago & never really used.

2. I received the email to be added to the adWords account at work

3. When I try to login (see screenShot) it says that I have an existing adWords account linked (&& no account number in the error message).

 

How can i add the work account to my google account?

Hi Veiga2412,

 

Although you have cancelled your older AdWords Account, the Google account/Gmail Address will stay attached.  What you need to do is reactivate that old account and apply an additional/alternative email address as the admin on that AdWords Account and then release the email address you want to use from that AdWords Account so it will become available for use in another AdWords Account.
