    That information isn't available when using a database audit. This article has a decent overview of different auditing methods:

    Various techniques to audit SQL Server databases

    It sounds more like you may want to create audit tables and populate those with triggers but I don't know enough about your auditing to say if that's a good direction or not. Keep in mind, sometimes you need to combine different methods to get what you need.

    Depending on your precise requirement, you might also consider Change Data Capture and Temporal Tables.
