SAP SRM approval report

I'm dealing on a SRM 7.0 system and I have to implement a custom report who should be able, for any given blanket order or purchase order, to automatically approve each step of the approval workflow (BRF).

Let's make an example: a possible input for the report is a BO actually released and in "Awaiting approval" status. In the "Approval" tab/section we see the following approval sequence:

1st step: Approver_1
2nd step: Approver_2


Last step: Approver_N.

The report should consider sequencially each approval step and approve them accordingly (basically automizing what the agent "Approver_*" would do by Portal by means of the "Approve" button).

I'm quite unexperienced on how BRF and WF work, I lurked for some guidance but so far, I didn't get the result.
Of course I'm considering this report has to be used by a superuser only, it's part of a more complex activity.

Waiting for your suggestions and guidance,

thanks in advance.

As I know, we have no standard report to approve/reject the document in GUI system.
Usually for GUI system, approver could logon to check their inbox via t-code SBWP, and if you want to force the document to be released or rejected, you may use transaction SWO1 to do this.
