Solution

This is a bit of a kluge but should work:

Let's suppose your character column is called A.

Create two hidden columns, B and C:

1. B is a copy of column A

2. C is a formula column who's formula is:

a. Do the two columns A and B have the same value?

b. If yes do nothing.

c. If no call your function, and then set the B equal to the new value of A

You might get some ideas on formula columns for step 2 from my poster: http://www.jmp.com/about/events/summit2011/protected/Poster11_PeterMroz.pdf

See section 4, where a table cell acts like a hyperlink. This approach might not be what you need, as I needed the user to just click on a column cell for things to happen.
