How to access a password protected field from MySQL on import

MySQL database has a password encrypted field.

When I import that field, it is ignored by Power BI.

When I open Power Query Editor, I am able to click the "APPLIED STEPS" value "Source" and then click on the "Data" column, "Table" value and create a Navigation step.

Power Query now displays the encrypted column as "Binary".

How do I unencrypt that field so I can use it?

Thx

Yea, I saw that post.  Saw it was 2018 and specific to SQL Server.

Thought I might catch lightening in a bottle and as the question anyway.

 

Thank you so much for your time.
