LOAD script - Assign field values to a variable

What is the easiest way to get to this without having to write several load steps and IF conditions for each code?

CODE_1_DATE is the date CODE_1 is placed, similarly for other codes

If an Account has two same codes, like 789 below, it has 120 in code_1 and code_2, I would need the 120 that is places latest. so it would be 1/9/2019

In the actual data I have as many as 12-15 codes.

HAVE:

ACCOUNTCODE_1CODE_2CODE_3code_4CODE_1_DATECODE_2_DATECODE_3_DATECODE_4_DATE
123120121122 1/2/20191/3/20191/4/2019 
4561201211221231/20/20191/3/20191/5/20191/8/2019
7891201201221211/8/20191/9/20191/10/20191/15/2019

 

WANT:

ACCOUNTCODE_120CODE_120_DATECODE_121CODE_121_DATECODE_122CODE_122_DATECODE_123CODE_123_DATE
123Y1/2/2019Y1/3/2019Y1/4/2019

I doubt that I would try to solve this and other tasks with your displayed data-structure else I would transform it with two joined crosstable-loads - means to load code and code-date separate and joining them together:

The-Crosstable-Load

After it I'm not sure that I would flag everything within the datamodel else I could imagine that you could fetch your needed values with firstsortedvalue() directly within the UI. If it should really happens within the script you might also use min/max/firstsortedvalue in separate loadings and just keeping them as associated tables or maybe re-joining them to the resident table.

An alternatively to the aggregation approach might be to use interrecord-functions within a sorted load to access and compare the previous loaded records:
