Hi,

 

on importing my CSV file, I get one error showing: "This row is not formatted properly."

 

Any idea what causes that?

 

Thanks,

Ed

Hi Ed K,

Can you tell us where you're importing your CSV file and what it contains? Was there any elaboration on the exact row or what may be causing the issue in any of the messaging you're seeing.

well, in the end, I found that it could be related to existing ad groups. My renaming all the old groups (which had the same name) - the problem went away.

So it seems, you cannot use the same name twice, is that correct?!

Ed K,

We still need more information to answer your question. Are you talking about Using the Adwords Editor, are you talking about Merchant center Feeds, are you talking about Business data, or shared library stuff? Can't help you if you don't provide a clearer picture of what true functionality in which you are trying to upload via CVS File.
Make Sense?

Ah sorry. It was using the adwords editor, to upload a prepared CSV file with my keywords and adgroups (+ads).
