d/dx(Ax - xe^(By)) = d/dx(y)

dy/dx

= A - d/dx(xe^(By))

= A - [e^(By) + Bx*e^(By)dy/dx] So this implies:

dy/dx[1 + Bxe^(By)] = A - e^(By) or

dy/dx = [A - e^(By)]/[1 + Bxe^(By)]

This looks like all derivatives will involve x's and y's which means that you can't get y as a function purely of x (or the other way around unless you use specific restrictions or find a parameterization.
