From that data, I want to see previous sales 1 day and previous sales 2 days based on PRODUCT, BRANCH, and SUB_BRANCH. So, the result should be like this:

I want to do this in load script. It this possible?

Please help. Thank you.

Yes, such tasks could be solved with interrecord-functions like previous() or peek(). Important for it is that the load is properly sorted with an appropriate order by statement - which also requires a resident-load or a select-load. In your case it looks that you couldn't get this sorting with your 4 single-fields else you will need to combine them like:

sub & '|' & branch & '|' & product & '|' & date as OrderField

and within the final load you will need something like this:

if(date = previous(date) and branch = previous(branch) ..., previous(sales), 0) ...

This means the belonging records following direct on each other so that you could with previous() directly access the ancestor record whereby you will need some if-loops to detect when comes a different key which hasn't an ancestor and/or if there are further requirements of conditions or any exception-handling.
