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.

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

I can't use powerBI anymore because of the privacy legislation.
