Hi Michael,
It seems that Mathematica 8 is able to solve for y:
In[1]:= Solve[y == a + b (Exp[40*(x + c*y)/d] - 1) - (x + c*y)/e, y]
During evaluation of In[1]:= Solve::ifun: Inverse functions are being
used by Solve, so some solutions may not be found; use Reduce for
complete solution information. >>
Out[1]= {{y -> (
40 a c e - 40 b c e - 40 c x -
c d ProductLog[-((
40 b c e E^((40 a c e)/(d (c + e)) - (40 b c e)/(d (c + e)) + (
40 x)/d - (40 c x)/(d (c + e))))/(d (c + e)))] -
d e ProductLog[-((
40 b c e E^((40 a c e)/(d (c + e)) - (40 b c e)/(d (c + e)) + (
40 x)/d - (40 c x)/(d (c + e))))/(d (c + e)))])/(
40 c (c + e))}}

Out[1]= {{y -> (
40 a c e - 40 b c e - 40 c x -
c d ProductLog[-((
40 b c e E^((40 a c e)/(d (c + e)) - (40 b c e)/(d (c + e)) + (
40 x)/d - (40 c x)/(d (c + e))))/(d (c + e)))] -
d e ProductLog[-((
40 b c e E^((40 a c e)/(d (c + e)) - (40 b c e)/(d (c + e)) + (
40 x)/d - (40 c x)/(d (c + e))))/(d (c + e)))])/(
40 c (c + e))}}
If that doesn't suit you you could rewrite your equation as y - a + b
(Exp[40*(x + c*y)/d] - 1) - (x + c*y)/e, square this, plug in the data
points (xi,yi) and sum, then Minimize this.
