, I have created an...

, I have created an "S" curve on a chart with numbers from my spreadsheet. The y axis is $ (dollars) range zero to infinity and the x axis is simple whole numbers zero to some maximum value used in the calculation. The S curve is created by a calculation that is does very well except issue. At the maximum (on the x axis) I sometimes show the whole numbers that go beyond the maximum because and the curve actually starts to decline down after the maximum. However, I really want a horizontal asymptote that approaches the maximum dollar value that is derived from the maximum whole number on the x axis. I had business calculus 25 years ago, so I looked at things on the web. I see how asymptotes are created by polynomials (etc), but the S curve I want is not made with a polynomial. I used trial and error with multiplication and addition to create the curve. I'm asking generally how to do this without giving out my formula if possible. thanks.
