Hi @Nagpraveen


Which data source do you want to get data from? 

If using web data source, you can refer to this similar thread:

Hi  @v-qiuyu-msft,

Thanks for the reply.


I am already getting the data from REST API source, no issue with that.

The simple issue is I have built a custom login form with text fields. Among them Username and password is also present, which is of text type.


How can I encode the raw text in password field using power query, like you have seen in other login forms.


Do I have some data type close to password type, just like we have text type?
