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.

Within the corporate environment, this is definitely needed.

This feature is badly needed!

How has this honestly not been addressed yet? Companies need the ability to use their data and secure their data with passwords at the same time. This should have been a release function. Laziness that it hasn't been addressed.

I totally support this idea. If we have the password then we should be able to access the file. This is becoming highly important now given the fact that all the organizations are focusing on data security.

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.
