Power BI and OLE DB Provider MSDASQL

Power BI does not support the Microsoft OLEDB Provider for ODBC Drivers also known as MSDASQL.

Power BI uses the .NET Framework Data Provider of OLEDB (System.Data.OLEDB).
This was found while connecting Power BI to Microsoft Excel using the connection string developed using a (Universal Data Link) UDL file.
; Everything after this line is an OLE DB initstring
Provider=MSDASQL.1;Persist Security Info=False;Extended Properties="DSN=Excel7_11;DBQ=C:\Users\Owner\Desktop\Blog2017\MSSS2017\Hindu_Islam_old.xls;DefaultDir=C:\Users\Owner\Desktop\Blog2017\MSSS2017;DriverId=1046;FIL=excel 12.0;MaxBufferSize=2048;PageTimeout=5;";Initial Catalog=C:\Users\Owner\Desktop\Blog2017\MSSS2017\Hindu_Islam.xlsx
Also Power BI does not support the Persist Security Info attribute set to false.
This is the error message about OLE DB Provider support.
