The Approval form is displayed as part of the workflow for approving reports. First you specify the report to be approved on the Report Approval form. When you click Accept, the Approval/Revision Interface form is displayed.

The first time a report is approved, only the Approved By field is active. All other fields are purely informational. The data displayed in these fields is read from the Revise Report form.
