Add Access (ADDBC) to Gateway Cluster



I've been trying to do this for days now. I'v researched the internet high and low without success. I figured adding Access as a data source for Power BI would be one of the simpliest methods. I've succesfully added SQL and Sharepoint but I can't figure out how to add Access. The access backend (ACCDB) is on my local buisness network. I figured a Power BI connector and some origanizational credentials would be all I need but Access isn't even a data source type in the Data Source Settings for configuring a new dataset. Super frustrated that this is so complicated. I've read all over this community that it is a common frustration.


Any help is much appreciated.


Thank you,
