I need to track who mast modified specific columns, and would like to display this name in a column within the list. So within the list Column A would be Fix complete and Column B would be Fix completed by. Column C would be Test complete and Column D would be Test completed by. Column B should tell me who added/modified the data in Column A. Column D should tell me who added/modified the data in Column C. I'm using SP 2007.
