Curve-fitting/data analysis question...

Hi all,

I've got some data that is approximately constant, c, over an
interval, and then drops off like -(a exp(b x)).

How can I determine when the constant part ends, and the negative
exponential begins in Mathematica? I can eyeball it on a graph, but I'd much
prefer to have a principled Mathematica routine settle the question. Once
that's settled, it should be straightforward to determine the
exponential's parameters via some curve-fitting routine or other.

Thanks for any suggestions,
