I’m trying to extract numbers from a string. I googled a formula, however the formula rounds up the last two digits of a 16 character string. Is there are a formula I could use eithoutcharacter limit?

Without a character limit *

Try text to column feature to break up the column if there is a limit to the number of characters the data can pull from.

Select column, hit alt, a, e

Then fixed length And then arbitrarily break the column into two

You can do the formula left or right it pulls a certain number of digits from the left or the right as indicated

I would try it but if it doesn’t work try text to columns

I met with the hiring manager and he pushed me to the "virtual onsite" to meet with 2 members of his team and a cross functional manager for individual interviews.

Here is how I feel I did:
Interview #1: B
Interview #2: A
Interview #3. C

I still have an upcoming interview with the leadership team.

My question is, how much influence does does the 3 interviews have in swaying the decision of my candidacy?

I'm also assuming that the senior leadership is definitely one of the major factors too.

Hi fishes,

got the offer from 
BNY Mellon | Pershing BNY Mellon Corporation Pune, India.

The offer letter mentions only fixed pay. HR told me that PF (employer), gratuity, and bonus (8%) are over and above fixed pay. But there is no mention of a bonus anywhere on offer. is this correct or am I getting tricked by HR? Help from current and ex BNYs is much appreciated.
