    Hi All,

    I have this issue for long time.

    I am able to connect the gateway installed on my machine to sql server instance but it is not for any particular file (Excel or txt file). it gives me error all time .

    I keep restarting the gateway, my username/password are correct , and it is working for sql connection.

    Please let me know if you experience the same issue and/or you were able to fix it.

    Thank you so much.
