Office 365 Pro Excel won't connect to AWS MySql

I've got an AWS database which I can easily connect to using MySql Workbench. I can connect to it as well from a remote server running windows.

But with Office 365 Pro I'm unable to connect.

When I complete the "Server" and "Database" fields and try to connect I get an error message which reads:

"MySQL: Authentication to host '' for user 'xxxxx' using method 'mysql_native_password' failed with message: Unknown database 'xxxxxxx'

I triple-check to make sure that all of the fields in Excel are correct and that there are no inadvertent blank spaces.

The database is known. I use the same name as I established for it at aws. (I assume this really does mean name... and not something else like endpoint).

And I've tried every combination of settings I can think of under Excel's "Datasource Settings"

Any thoughts? Thanks.
