Find previous value in load script

Hi everyone! Nice to be in touch with you again. I'm stuck in this scenario, and I'm needing some help.

Let's say I'm having a table like this. It shows income per day from people suscribed to a service

DateNameSuscEnabledIncome
1/1/2018Person1Yes$5
1/1/2018Person 2Yes$2
2/1/2018Person 1Yes$8
2/1/2018Person 2Yes$5
3/1/2018Person 1No$0
3/1/2018Person 2Yes$5
4/1/2018Person 1No$0
4/1/2018Person 2Yes$1

Now heres the situation I'm stucked. I need to build a table with the previous income where the suscription enabled change from "yes" to "no", so I can see the income loss from one day compared with the previous day. Something like this

DateEarn lost due cancellation
1/1/2018$0
2/1/2018$0
3/1/2018$8
4/1/2018$0

Here the table shows that in the day 3/1/2018 I stop earning $8 compared to day 2/1/2018 because person 1 cancelled the suscription.

But the table shows $0 on 4/1/2018 because the status of cancellation of Person 1 occurs 2 days ago, and I'm only watching for changes 1 day ago.

The question I'm asking to count or not is:  SuscEnabled = "No" and previous SuscEnabled = Yes, then sum previous income

Do you know how can I do this?

Thanks in advance

Needs to be in a sortable data source (database or resident load):

LOAD Date,

  Name,

  Income,

  If(SuscEnabled = 'No' And Previous(SuscEnabled) = 'Yes', Previous(Income), 0) as LostIncome,

Resident Data

Order by Name, Date;
