Make changes to multiple accounts

You can use AdWords Editor to import a CSV file into multiple accounts and export more than one account into a single CSV file. 

Instructions

Export multiple accounts into one file

You can export multiple accounts into one CSV file. Here’s how:

  1. From the accounts manager, select one or more accounts.
  2. Click Export.
  3. In the window that opens, enter a name for your file and choose a file type.
  4. Click Save.
Note
To always include an account column in your exports, click Settings, then General, and check the box next to “Always include account column in CSV/ZIP exports.”

Import a file into multiple accounts

You can make changes to multiple accounts by importing one CSV file. There are two ways to do this. 

If you have a CSV or ZIP file that has an account column with a list of Customer IDs, follow these steps:

  1. From the accounts manager, click Import.
  2. Select “From file.”
  3. Select the file you want to import.
  4. Click Open.
  5. In the window that appears, click Finish and review changes.

If your CSV or ZIP file doesn’t have an account column, or if you want to use advanced features, follow these steps:

  1. From the accounts manager, click Import.
  2. Select “Paste text.”
  3. On the right, paste your data into the grid. Include column headings in English or manually select headings from the drop-down menus at the top of the grid.
  4. On the left, select one of these options:
    1. “My data includes account information:” Use this option if you’re pasting data that includes an account column.
    2. “Only use data with accounts that match those selected below:” Select this option if you’re pasting data that includes an account column but you want to select a subset of those accounts to import your file into. Data will only be imported to the accounts that are checked, even if the unchecked accounts are listed in the file. This option lets you import data to certain accounts without having to make changes to the account column in your file.
    3. “Use selected accounts:” Use this option if your file doesn’t have an account column or if you don’t want to use that column in the import. Instead, all of your rows will be imported into every account you select.
  5. Click Process.
  6. To import your changes without reviewing them, check the box next to “Automatically accept all imported changes.” To review your changes, leave the box unchecked. 
  7. Click Finish.
