I need your help to complete the VLOOKUP formula I need to SUM the salary and the commission (Commission is computed by multiplying a commission rate times the sales.)

I tried to use the following information to set up the table.
Employees in department 200 receive a $10,000 salary and a 2% commission.
Employees in department 300 receive a $5,000 salary and a 4% commission.
Employees in department 100 receive a $15,000 salary and a 1% commission.
Employees in department 400 receive a $8,000 salary and a 5% commission
I guess I can add the functions.

Name      Dept          Sales           Check Amount
Mary        200          4,000.00       
Sue          400           500.00       
George      300          1,000.00       
Istar          100            2,000.00       

TOTAL              $  7,500.00        $                 -  
Table to Compute Check:

    This relies on a lookup table of dept, salary and commission starting in G2.
