Hi
1. Do you need local (3 points) or global (all points) spline?
2. Do you need interpolation or extrapolation too?
3. I'm afraid you forgot to add some zeroes to points value <smile>

1. all points
2. interpolation
3. I lost my points because I put the
questions first in a wrong topic area
sorry, but I don't have more points
availables :(

Hi
just one more question - plz, describe your 2d array - is this A(n,2) or A(2,n) dimension, is it zero or 1 bazed. Or you have 2 one-dim arrays?
for example:
A(0,0) = X(0)
A(0,1) = Y(0)
A(1,0) = X(1)
etc...
Cheers

Ok, here it is.
I assume, you have 1 based 2dim array,like this:
A(1,1) = X(1)
A(1,2) = X(2)
A(1,3) = X(3)
A(2,1) = Y(1)
A(2,2) = Y(2)
A(2,3) = Y(3)
If not, I specially work with X() and Y() arrays so you can change code.
Place PictureBox, command button and TextBox (multiline) on form. Form code:

Option Explicit
Option Base 1
Dim M() As Single
Dim X() As Single, Y() As Single
Dim TempArr() As Single

Private Sub PrepareSpline(inpArr() As Single)
  Dim n As Integer, i As Integer
  Dim L() As Single, R() As Single, S() As Single
  Dim D As Single, E As Single, F As Single, H As Single, P As Single
  n = UBound(inpArr, 2)
  If n < 2 Then Exit Sub
  ReDim M(n), X(n), Y(n), L(n), R(n), S(n)
  For i = 1 To n
      X(i) = inpArr(1, i)
      Y(i) = inpArr(2, i)
  Next i
  D = X(2) - X(1):  E = (Y(2) - Y(1)) / D
  For i = 2 To n - 1
      H = D: D = X(i + 1) - X(i)
      If D = 0 Then D = 0.0001
      F = E: E = (Y(i + 1) - Y(i)) / D
      L(i) = D / (D + H)
      R(i) = 1 - L(i)
      S(i) = 6 * (E - F) / (D + H)
  Next i
  For i = 2 To n - 1
      P = 1 / (R(i) * L(i - 1) + 2)
      L(i) = -L(i) * P
      S(i) = (S(i) - R(i) * S(i - 1)) * P
  Next i
  M(n) = 0: L(n - 1) = S(n - 1): M(n - 1) = L(n - 1)
  For i = n - 2 To 1 Step -1
      L(i) = L(i) * L(i + 1) + S(i)
      M(i) = L(i)
  Next i
End Sub

Private Function CalcValue(arg As Single) As Single
  Dim ret As Single, i As Integer, n As Integer
  Dim D As Single, H As Single, P As Single, R As Single
  n = UBound(X)
  For i = 1 To n
      If arg < X(i) Then Exit For
  Next i
  Select Case i
     Case 1    ' arg less then x(1) -> Extrapolation
       D = X(2) - X(1)
       If D = 0 Then D = 0.0001
       ret = -D * M(2) / 6 + (Y(2) - Y(1)) / D
       ret = ret * (arg - X(1)) + Y(1)
     Case n + 1 ' arg greater then x(n) -> Extrapolation
       D = X(n) - X(n - 1)
       If D = 0 Then D = 0.0001
       ret = D * M(n - 1) / 6 + (Y(n) - Y(n - 1)) / D
       ret = ret * (arg - X(n)) + Y(n)
     Case Else  'interpolation
       D = X(i) - X(i - 1): H = arg - X(i - 1)
       R = X(i) - arg: P = D * D / 6
       ret = (M(i - 1) * R ^ 3 + M(i) * H ^ 3) / (6 * D)
       ret = ret + ((Y(i - 1) - M(i - 1) * P) * R + (Y(i) - M(i) * P) * H) / D
  End Select
  CalcValue = ret
End Function

Private Sub Command1_Click()
  PrepareSpline TempArr
  DrawCurve 1
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
  Text1 = ""
  Picture1.FillColor = vbRed
  Picture1.FillStyle = vbSolid
End Sub

Private Sub Picture1_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
  Dim i As Integer
  Static n1 As Integer
  If Button = 1 Then
     n1 = n1 + 1
     ReDim Preserve TempArr(2, n1)
     TempArr(1, n1) = X
     TempArr(2, n1) = Y
     Text1 = Text1 & vbCrLf & TempArr(1, n1) & vbTab & TempArr(2, n1)
     Picture1.Circle (X, Y), 50
  End If
End Sub

Private Sub DrawCurve(iStep As Integer)
  Dim i As Integer
  Picture1.PSet (X(LBound(X)), CalcValue(X(LBound(X))))
  For i = X(LBound(X)) + iStep To X(UBound(X)) Step iStep
      Picture1.Line -(i, CalcValue(CSng(i)))
  Next i
End Sub

' click on picturebox to draw points, then press command button
' sometimes you can received overflow or division by zero - it's depend on array value. You can fixed this yourself. (I've already spend 3 hours for coding and have no more time). Or I'll fix it after weekend.
