  • Hi Kishor,

    Thanks for your question.

    In this scenario, you may need to tick the Save password option for your connection string.

    To do this, please go to Excel menu Data, Go to "Connections---Properties---Definition" ,please check the option "Always use connection file" and "Save password". Please refer to below image:
