I have an web application. User wants to do the following task every year in the web interface.

(i) save / submit data any number of times for multiple records in a given year in the UI.
(ii) approve all records once in a year in the UI..... once approved records user can not modify.



my issue:
---------


Should I make two tables ? one for save/submit for multiple records entered by user and other for approve user ?

OR

Should I make one table ? save/submit/approve for multiple records all in one table ?

OR

how do I design my table to do this ?
