Microsoft query does NOT encrypt your  password when saving it in the datasource definition.  It will be visible to anyone who looks at the data source definition with a simple text editor.
Are you sure you want to save your password?

This is by design when using Microsoft Query,
You received it because you checked the box when saving your query asking
if you want to save your username and password in the datasource definition.
If you decide to let the query store your log on name and password this is how it is saved in the query itself.
The only way to not see this message is to uncheck the check box as mentioned above and then you will be asked to type your user name and password each time you run the query.
