Hello,

There is more code that you have not posted.

From the little you've posted, assume the PERFORM started with INDEX-CODE being greater than TRESHOLD-LIMIT. The code will iterate until SUB is no longer greater than THRESHOLD-LIMIT.

If you post more code and the associated variables, someone can provide more info for you.
