=INDEX($D$2:$D$5,MATCH(1,($F$2:$F$5=RIGHT(A2,LEN(A2)-FIND(",",A2)))*($E$2:$E$5=LEFT(A2,FIND(",",A2)-1)),0))

in cell B2, validated by Ctrl+Shift+Enter (this is an array formula)

Hi,

=INDEX($D$2:$D$5,MATCH(A2,$E$2:$E$5&","&$F$2:$F$5,0))

It's an array formula. Confirmed with CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER

Since empid is going to be a number, you can use (in cell B2 and drag down):
=SUMPRODUCT($D$2:$D$5,--(A2=$E$2:$E$5&","&$F$2:$F$5))
(Not an Array Formula)
