2 of the columns in my JTable hold monetary values ( double).
If the value in cell A changes, then value B should be updated with the result of a calculation performed using the new value in A and the old value in B.
Sort of like a spreadsheet.
I can't seem to set the new value of A for use in a simple calculation.

At present my code is as follows:

I haven't tried your code, but I think there are more conventional ways to solve your problem that are [BOLD]much[/BOLD] simpler.
something like this:

Basic idea:
1. there is some data that are stored in your cache object
2. there is a GUI object (e.g. JTable) that is the interface, but does not store the data
3. you use a model (e.g. TableModel) to control the data and interface between the data cache and the view
I'm sure other people could list numerous resources on this Design Pattern.
