Hi all,

 

I am running windows 10 .net 4.9 (whatever the latest is) framework and excel 2016 professional on x64 system . My Get & Transform web queries to https addresses returns The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel. How do I resolve this. These queries were working fine a few weeks ago. 

 

Any advice on what settings to change in excel etc will be much appreciated. I am not much of a techie so step by step instructions will be helpful

 

Much appreciated
