SPS 2010- Cannot View Custom column in another Library

In SPS 2010, I have the following:

2 Document libraries (Approval and Approved) In the Same site
2 Custom Columns : Approved Manager, Invoice Amount
1 Workflow that:
    a.) writes the current user into a field called approved Manager
    b.) copies the file over to the Approved Documents
    c.) deletes it from the Approval library

The only field that gets copied over with the file is the invoice amount. Approved Manager does not get copied over (A single text item), nor does some other columns that I tried to test.

How do I view the data that was inputted by the user when they uploaded the file in another document library?

Who is Participating?
The issue can happened if the Approved Manager column in the first library is no the same column in the second library.
You must ensure that the columns have the same settings, so I can suggest you to create a Site Column named Approved Manager and add it to your source and target libraries.

One more thing you can do to check the process : log to history the  Approved Manager value just after you have updated it in the source item and don't delete the item after the copy, just to be sure that the value of the Approved Manager really exists when you try to copy the item. It can be some issue with the filed type as well.

I hope it will help.
