Withdrawn means the customer decided not to apply for the loan BEFORE the credit decision was made.

Approved but not Accepted means the custoemr decided to not take the loan AFTER the bank had approved the request.

Richard is correct. I always like to say that, while a customer can withdraw a loan at any time in the application process, for HMDA purposes the bank cannot report the application as withdrawn if a credit decision has been made. The bank must report the credit decision, which would result in approved not accepted, denied, etc.

In actuality, the customer still withdrew the loan application.
