Audit Trail in word

I'm looking for a solution for maintaining an audit trail in a Word document which:

a. records the date and time of each entry of information for each client; 

b. indicates the identity of the person who made the entry; 

c. indicates any changes in the recorded information; and 

d. preserves the original content of the recorded information when changed or updated

How can i obtain an audit trail in a word document with all the requirements mentioned above?


The nearest that you are going to get to it is to apply protection to the document for Tracked changes

Hope this helps,
