Do multiple "case" lines run against each line or is each run against the table ?

Do multiple "case" lines run against each line or is each run against the table ?

I have informix 9.40.FC7. I have a 31 million line table that I extract information from. It takes up to 7 days now to finish. I don't know if it runs the 4 "case" lines against each row or if it is running 1 "case" against the 31 million rows and then moves to the next "case". Any ideas? I'd appreciate any assistance! Thanks!
