Summary: relational pattern

Thanks for all your responses. There are several articles and even some
stuff in pro/e help files on relational patterns. I had experience on a
flat surface, with the first point defined on a curve as actual length, as
described in the link below (profilesmagazine), however, the part I was
using was a projected square on a cone, so I could not measure the lengths
of the sides. (If you have the behavioral modeling module, you can measure
the length and then define it as a feature to use in your pattern) Without
behavioral modeling module, I was forced to do the following:
Create four separate curves on the cone and create four separate patterns
with the first point defined as length ratio. It's a little more tedious,
but not real bad. Figuring out the relations is pretty easy and entering
the increments is as follows:

MEMB_I=.25 or something like this...

MEMB_I=1/(holes-1)

If you want to know more...go to the profiles magazine link first. I
followed that exactly, except now I am defining the point on the curve as
length ratio and I am defining the axis as PNT ON SRF (point on surface).
Also, the original curve has to be defined as projected, follow surface.
Thanks again for your responses,
Jeff
