Table design issue

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 ?


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


how do I design my table to do this ?

i would use two tables, where the “approved” table has one row, one column

i like to use a column in “approved” with 0 or 1 in the first be easier to query about.
