It would be great if we can connect or open the password protected excel workbook inside Power BI Desktop. Of course we should know & provide the password first.

Would be very helpful to have. Unfortunate that it's been a request for nearly 5 years.

Needed this for over 3 years. Using VBA script requires to much to get it going and additional server, this option would make it very easy to do more things.

Just coming up to a problem where I'd need to be able to use this functionality, that it's been here for over four years without even a comment doesn't fill me with confidence it'll be completed any time soon, if ever
