You need to look for "simultaneous quadratic equations". If your curve is in multiple segments, each segment will have to be solved separately, and each segment will have to be represented as a separate y=f(x) function.<br> <br> Philip Rhoades wrote: <blockquote cite="mid:498343C8.9010907@..." type="cite"> <pre wrap="">Rob, Thanks for note  I will check them out but I thought it should be possible to use the information in the .svg file  as long as the curve is a fn, then the formula should be able to be determined . .
