Trouble adding SQL Server as connection

Credentials are missing or not valid. inner exception: The credentials provided for the SQL source are invalid. (Source at desktop-4aec7ln\sqlexpress;Excel Demo.) clientRequestId: f63829f9-c78d-407e-8e16-76e05116c3b7.


I'm trying to connect SQL Server as a connection on Power Automate so that I can use it in multiple flows. However, when I enter the requested information, it returns the above error.  The log in information that I am using is my computer log in. Is this correct? Also, I am using the Windows Authentication option. I tried all the other options (Azure, SQL Authenticiation, etc) but they didn't work either. 


Not sure what I am doing wrong, can someone help with this?

are you able to sign in to azure sql from sql management studio with same credential?

Have a good day.
