Encrypted Excel File-- how to connect

Anyone know what the connection setting is to connect to a password protected encrypted Excel file? I can't find that option.

Thanks in advance.

Checked with our Product Manager on this, and Toad Datapoint has never supported connections to password-protected (toward encryption) Excel files. Can you submit to the idea pond, please, and possibly include your motivation or example use cases? I can see where this may have some merit in certain situations.

Thank you. I will submit this to the idea pond. I use Toad for Health Care data analysis. All reports are supplied in encrypted Excel Files because of HIPAA concerns. I would think this is common in Health Care.
