So you know how in feb 1933 that the leagues report was approved in assembly by 42-1 votes, was that good ?? Could they not go through with it because of Japan’s 1 vote?

No, that is not the reason.

The issue was that the League of Nations didn't have the power to stop Japan from invading China. They could vote to declare it wrong, but that was it - they had no power to enforce it. Japan didn't listen and just left the League.

The only tool the League had was to place economic sanctions on Japan, but Japan's biggest trading partner - the USA - had never joined the League, so any sanctions imposed by only League nations were not likely to have a significant effect on Japan's economy.
