Power Query on Password Protected Book

I have a query on the workbook that contains the query. The file (xlsm) is also password protected. When I don’t have the password on the file the query works when i reinstate the p;/w the query hangs .

What are my options. The most sensitive tab is a salaries tab.

Thank You


Hello Allister,

Right now Power BI does not support the password protected excel file. You can upvote the request if needed.

I found an interesting Microsoft read. Hope this would be helpful.

Also, “Roles” may help if you plan very carefully.

All the best.
