So I ran into the same issue and solved it basically with the details in the link above. You can pull down my gist https://gist.github.com/cmaggiulli/6e14324b95d2a772a9c80161e6ac2525 and run it to create a dedicated excel_plugin_user user that works with MySQL8 and the Excel plugin.

This was on a Windows 10 system, however it stopped working when we switched to o365. So if you are using Office 365 you might still have issues, but otherwise it worked perfect for me
