I am really interested in knowing how the lookup function table works.

How do I convert a specific number into an X location on the table

For instance...

I have this "defined" table:
0,400,800,1200,1600,2000,2400,2800,3200,3600,4000,4400,4800,5200,5600,6000,6400,6800,7200,7600,8000 for X axis

if i have an independent variable of 4000, the result should be 11 on the lookup, but how do I perform this function? Or how do I create this table with those Xs or labels?

The code I am looking at looks like this
move #4000,d2
cmpi.w #$A000,d2
lsr.w #3,d2

in theory it should result in 11, but it results in 500 for D2 ($1F4).

Any help is REALLY appreciated.

Here is a quick example.
* Title      : Table search example
* Written by : Charles Kelly
* Date       : July 7th, 2015
* Description: Read comments for description. No user interaction.
    OPT     SEX         ; Expand structured code
    ORG     $1000
START:                  ; first instruction of program

* Put program code here
* Search table of word values pointed to by A0 for value contained in D2.
    lea TABLE,A0        ; A0 is pointer to Table
    move.w  #4000,D2    ; Search value in D2
    bsr     SEARCH      ; Call SEARCH subroutine
    SIMHALT             ; halt simulator

* Search table of word values pointed to by A0 for value contained in D2.
* Pre:  A0 contains adddress of Table
*       D2.W contains search value
* Post: D3 contains index to value or -1 if not found
    clr.l D3            ; Index in D3
    while.w (A0) <lo> #TABLE_END do
        if.w D2 <eq> (A0)+ then ; if found
            add #1,d3   ; Increment index
    move.l  #-1,d3      ; Value not found

* Put variables and constants here

* Table array
TABLE   DC.W       0
        DC.W     400
        DC.W     800
        DC.W    1200
