Note regarding 'phantom' pending Project Approvals.   On occasion, a project approver is added to a project after an expense report was originally submitted.  In these cases, the Expense Report Status report may erroneously reflect a pending approval for that new project approver that is not actually pending (that is, the project approver will not see any pending approvals in their actual project approval queue for that particular expense report).  This discrepancy is due to how the Expense Report Status report derives potential pending approvals that may not yet exist in a project approvers queue (ie in situations such as 'customer approves first').  As such, it is possible to encounter these 'phantom' pending project approvals.  Once these expense reports have had the other Manager, Project Approver and Customer approvals satisfied, the expense report status will graduate to COMPLETED and the phantom project approval will no longer appear on the Expense Report Status report.
