Anyone able to see where I would put negative keywords in that template?

Same place as positive keyword. Put a minus sign (-) in front of the keyword text, or add the word "negative" to the match type, e.g. "negative broad".

How would you label columns for testing ads? An A/B split, or multivariate testing?

 

thanks!

I'm not sure I understand the question. An ad is an ad, Editor doesn't know nor care how you plan to use it, whether for split testing or otherwise.

 

If you are thinking of some setting that Editor supports (which one?), then set up one ad with this setting manually, then export it to CSV (or copy it in Editor and paste into your favorite spreadsheet application). The easiest way to find out how to prepare some feature for CSV import is to see how Editor represents it in CSV export.

I stumbled across another discussion, of which you were a part -- has there been a resolution to this? https://www.en.adwords-community.com/t5/Manage-ads/Duplicate-text-ad-error-when-importing-into-Adwor...

Thank you!

Yes there has been. It's in my last post in that thread, on the second page.

Sorry, that doesn't appear to resolve my problem. I'm wondering if I have two ads I want to test against each other, what should the headings in the csv file should be, i.e. Ad Headline A | Description Line 1 A | Description Line 2 A | Ad Headline B | Description Line 1 B | Description Line 2 B etc...
