Hi,

If you have made changes to your current ads without copying them then those ads will show the same status but not the keywords.

Hi @Archit,

Hi @Fahad S,

You are right. Ideally, if you made changes to your ad, your keywords should not have gotten removed. There is no connection with changing ads and a keyword status.
Does someone else have access to your account? You may want to chk your change history to identify who made those changes and when.
Heres how you see change history - https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2454137?hl=en

Hope this helps!

Either you have changed the current ads also or someone else did it.
But any change within the ads will not change or remove your keywords until you have edited the keywords also.

Its good to hear.
Please make sure that not to edit the current ads and keywords instead make a copy and pause the previous ones otherwise you will loose the historical data.
