Why do you want to do that? Could it be that your formulae contain an error? You don't test the returnvalue of @DialogBox...

FIELD Comments :="";
FIELD MemberDialog := MemberDialog;
FIELD Comments := Comments;
Comments:= @DialogBox("APF";[AutoHorzFit]:[AutoVertFit];"Comments");
@If(Comments = ""; @Return(""); "");
@SetField ("MemberDialog"; MemberDialog + @Name([CN]; @UserName) + " on  " + @Text(@Today)+" : " + Comments + @NewLine + @NewLine + "***********************************************************************************"+@NewLine)

this is a sample:
flag = NotesUIWorkspace.DialogBox("form", autoHorzFit, autoVertFit, noCancel, noNewFields, noFieldUpdate, readOnly, "title', NotesDocument)

so, let me put your problem in this way:

U have a Action button, when users clicks on Disapprove(Reject), it should propmt for input from the user and the data typed by the user should store into the document for which he/she is taking action. Am I right?

What sould happen if they click Cancel?

Try this:
xlFileName$ = Inputbox("What are the reasons for REJECTION?")
      
      If xlFileName$="" Then
            Exit Sub
      End If
'      Dim ws As New notesuiworkspace
'      Dim uidoc As NotesUIDocument
'      Dim curdoc As NotesDocument
      Dim ss As New NotesSession
      Dim db As NotesDatabase
      Dim dc As NotesDocumentcollection
      Dim doc As NotesDocument
      
      Set db=ss.CurrentDatabase
      Set dc=db.UnprocessedDocuments
      
      Set doc=dc.GetFirstDocument
