It looks like the user details are missing from the connection in Alteryx.


When you go through the input data tool it pops up initially. Did you enter a username and password in there?

Hi @Taghreed_MK 


Just a tip: use the  SQL Server Native Client 11.0 and connect through OleDB connection


This article actually explains how to do this.


Thank you so much !
