Need Google Adwords Api Expert

Need Google Adwords Api Expert
Hi there,

I have a PHP script which reads records from a database on our server and creates a Google AdWords ad out of each record.

It seems to work fine except for one major error that has been crashing it.

The error looks like this (private account data replaced with ##):

Fault: 1 Code: soapenv:Server.userException String: One or more input elements failed validation. Detail: POST /api/adwords/v13/CriterionService HTTP/1.0 Host: adwords.google.com User-Agent: NuSOAP/0.7.3 (1.114) Content-Type: text/xml; charset=ISO-8859-1 SOAPAction: “” Content-Length: 805 #######################################KeywordBroadHTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error Content-Type: text/xml; charset=iso-8859-1 Date: Wed, 13 Jan 2010 07:17:31 GMT Expires: Wed, 13 Jan 2010 07:17:31 GMT Cache-Control: private, max-age=0 X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff X-XSS-Protection: 0 X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN Server: GFE/2.0 Transfer-Encoding: chunked 278 1 20 0cc701acc2182873c3a8dafd7ca9c22e soapenv:Server.userException One or more input elements failed validation. 122 One or more input elements failed validation. 0 text 14 false Required field must not be blank

The result, when the script has crashed in this way, is that many ads are created in the AdWords account, but a large percentage of them are “empty” with no content. Many also don’t have keywords.

The script itself is attached so you can take a look. If you’re an AdWords expert and you think you know what the problem is, please bid. If you can help us with this, we will have other AdWords projects for you in the future. Thanks!
