JTable - editing Objects

I've got a table. It has a column that contains an object. It has a custom renderer that displays the field name of the object. I'd like to be able to edit this name, but whenever I try to hook it up for editing it always tries to edit the object.
Does anyone have any ideas?

If you use DefaultTableModel, you can override the setValueAt method and do what you want.

Thanks, I'll give that a try (I didn't think of that trying that one). Also, while I was looking for answers I discovered I was able to override toString and get rid of my custom renderer.
