    Hi @siya1234

    I'd probably follow the error Encrypted excel file 'SAMPLE.XLSX' is not supported, please remove its password.. Try placing a SAMPLE.XLSX on your SFTP Server that is not encrypted and try to reconnect ADF.


    If this is helpful please accept answer.

    Hello @siya1234

    As said by @Dillon Silzer , first check if the file is encrypted and has a password, if yes then remove it and then place it again on SFTP

    Currently, ADF will not support decrypting a password protected file, but if that is your requirement, you will either have to use a different component like Azure Function
