Dear David,

We know that the Arbitrary fit can allows us to specify a function with unkown parameters. But Does it work when using to fit the logarithm equation? for example y=ln(1+a*x)/a, or how to fit the data with y=ln(1+a*x)/a. Thanks for your time!

It will. However, the ln function is called log, so use the expression

log(1+a*x)/a

I'm using the math convention of log = natural log and log10 is the 10 based log. There is also a log2 for the 2 based log.
