This article explains how to transfer data from Excel to Snapchat Ads using the Excel Add-In for Snapchat Ads.

The CData Excel Add-In for Snapchat Ads enables you to edit and save Snapchat Ads data directly from Excel. This article explains how to transfer data from Excel to Snapchat Ads. This technique is useful if you want to work on Snapchat Ads data in Excel and update changes, or if you have a whole spreadsheet you want to import into Snapchat Ads. In this example, you will use the Campaigns table; however, the same process will work for any table that can be retrieved by the CData Excel Add-In.

Establish a Connection

If you have not already done so, create a new Snapchat Ads connection by clicking From Snapchat Ads on the ribbon.

You will need to create an OAuth application to connect to Snapchat Ads. See the online Help documentation for an authentication guide.

Additionally, you can optionally set AccountId to provide a default Account ID (meaning it won't need to be manually provided in the WHERE clause). If the AccountId is not specified, the first account in the Accounts view is used.

Retrieve Data from Snapchat Ads

To insert data into Snapchat Ads, you will first need to retrieve data from the Snapchat Ads table you want to add to. This links the Excel spreadsheet to the Snapchat Ads table selected: After you retrieve data, any changes you make to the data are highlighted in red.

  1. Click the From Snapchat Ads button on the CData ribbon. The Data Selection wizard is displayed.
  2. In the Table or View menu, select the Campaigns table.
  3. In the Maximum Rows menu, select the number of rows you want to retrieve. If you want to insert rows, you need to retrieve only one row. The Query box will then display the SQL query that corresponds to your request.
  4. In the Sheet Name box, enter the name for the sheet that will be populated. By default the add-in will create a new sheet with the name of the table.

Insert Rows to Snapchat Ads

After retrieving data, you can add data from an existing spreadsheet in Excel.

  1. In a cell after the last row, enter a formula referencing the corresponding cell from the other spreadsheet; for example, =MyCampaignsSheetInExcel!A1.
  2. After using a formula to reference the cells you want to add to Snapchat Ads, select the cells that you are inserting data into and drag the formula down as far as needed. The referenced values you want to add will be displayed on the Campaigns sheet.
  3. Highlight the rows you want to insert and click the Insert Rows button.

As each row is inserted, the Id value will appear in the Id column and the row's text will change to black, indicating that the record has been inserted.
