Replacing an existing campaign with a draft campaign

My adwords account has been running a campaign that is no longer valid (in terms of keywords and ads). I created a draft campaign with the correct ads and keywords. I want to now replace my existing campaign with this draft version. How do I do that?

Hi Nidhi,

 

Firstly, If you are replacing all keywords and ads in your campaign. Why don't you create a new campaign altogether?

 

From Drafts, you can click apply and choose update your original campaign.

 

Let me know if I misunderstood your query.

Thanks

Hi Neha, 

 

Thanks for your reply. For some reason when I clicked "update your original campaign" to my draft, the original campaign wasn't getting updated. In my frustration, I went ahead and created a new campaign altogether by creating the ads once again and entering the keywords. However, when I checked now even the original campaign now appears to be updated. Oh, well! Thanks for your reply anyways.
