I tried drilling wood glue because I want to fix the screw there but I couldn't do it. The drill was not drilling a hole in glue and the screw did not fix there. I just want to make a proper hole in glue?

Are there issues with my tools or technique?

Can somebody properly guide me to make a hole in wood glue?

    Suggestion: remove the glue completely, then glue in a wooden dowel that fills the cavity. When the glue dries, drill a pilot hole in the dowel and fix your screw into it. – Phil Freedenberg Mar 7 at 4:43

    At high speed, the glue might melt, reducing friction. Use a sharp drill bit at lower speed. – DrMoishe Pippik Mar 7 at 5:21
