Vlookup looks up a value in the first column of a data table and returns results from other columns in the corresponding row
Excelchat Expert 17/04/2018 - 07:11
G2 has the formula =vlookup(F2,A1:C6,2)
Excelchat Expert 17/04/2018 - 07:12
So its telling to search for 5 in the table range A1:C6 and return value from column 2
Excelchat Expert 17/04/2018 - 07:12
And then H2 to return value from column 3 by changing column reference in the formula
Excelchat Expert 17/04/2018 - 07:13
If you change the employee ID in F2, G2 and H2 also will change
Excelchat Expert 17/04/2018 - 07:16
Does that solve your query?
