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.

RE: Connect to password protected excel workbook

This feature is a MUST; otherwise how can we use excel from Power Automate with a minimum security?

I somewhat expect to have issues connecting to Salesforce or other non-Microsoft products. But it unbelievable to me that we cannot connect to excel files if they have a password or if they are .xlsb. How was this missed?

Would really like to have this available in Power BI Dataflow to be able to read password protected Excel
