ODBC Error: [netsuite][odbc 64bit driver]error parsing connect string at offset 65

If you encounter this error, this might be the result of the complexity of your password.


The process I followed:

- Installed the Netsuite ODBC driver as described

- Entered the necessary credentials

- Tested the connection and WITH success !


In PowerBI

- Created a new pbix.

- Selected the ODBC connector with the Netsuite connection

- Entered mij credentials 

- Received the above (see title) ERROR.

After two hours looking into the problem and not thinking of a credentials issue - because testing the connection worked - it was after looking at my password and seeing al the special chararters that I got  a bright moment. Changed the password in something complex but with no exotic characters, retried the setup and it worked.


Hopefully this will help a few people searching for hours.
