Hi,

 
I'm currently running into a problem with the adwords editor (last version 10.4.1 on MacOs 10.9.3).
When posting newly created campaign, after reaching the 1000 adgroup posted per campaign, I get an error "Exceeding account limit at a campaign level"
 
Sometime it does work fine and sometimes it seems a there is a bug that reach a limit where it is not supposed to similar to this thread:
 
 
Does someone know how to fix this issue?
 
Thank you

There is indeed no limit of 1000 ad groups per campaign - but there's a limit of 1000 ad groups carrying bid strategy overrides per campaign. If you expand More Info section on the error dialog, you should see "AD_GROUP_BIDDING_STRATEGY_OVERRIDES_PER_CAMPAIGN" somewhere in the detailed error message.

To avoid the limit, make sure your ad groups have "Bid strategy: Use campaign bid strategy" setting. If you do want to use per-ad group bid strategy overrides, then you can only have 1000 such ad groups per campaign. The limit is imposed by the AdWords system - Editor is just a messenger, a bearer of bad news.

Hi Igor,

 

Indeed this fixed the problem. I'm posting a screen of the error I got from the Adwords Editor as it is slightly different from what you mentioned and could be helpful for somebody else

 

Thank you
