Validate Data before Submit Into Approval Process

Hi!..I have a requirement. Before submitting a record into an approval process, I need to validate some information in others records..if the validation fails, I need to send a warning to the user…if it’s ok, the approval process is fired.
Any idea in order to achieve the requirement? I’m lost here, any kind of help is welcome.

HI Marianoa,

You need to go for a custom button with VF or Javascript button to submit for approval.
and you can use apex to initialize the approval process.
Find an example here.
