@dcmst, I have implemented the suggested changes. It now works like a charm. Thanks!

Thank you very much; I see no issue with the compiled result.

comment Vertical alignment of image an text within tabular environment placed in header using fancyhdr package
@StevenB.Segletes, Thanks for the revision, I have attached my output; I'm still seeing a gap between the top of the header area and the top of the image and text. I also note that changing the value associated with the textwidth option of the geometry package call on my system is not showing any thinning or broadening of the text. I don't understand why there is no effect.

comment Vertical alignment of image an text within tabular environment placed in header using fancyhdr package
Thank you very much for the suggestions. I have edited the initial question, adding a supplementary figure, which is what I get when I compile the code suggested above. I'm not sure why there is a discrepancy between your output and mine. Could my system be getting default geometry settings from some configuration file? Also, my motivation in using \fancyhead[R] is to place the image and text in the rightmost third of the header. The supplementary output shows the image and text occupying the entire header.

comment Using catchfile and envlab packages
Thank you kindly for the insightful remarks; I do find the latter example appealing. I will have to look further into the expl3 code, as I don't understand this section.

I tested this; works in my code successfully! Thank you very much for the additional comments, they are appreciated.

Thank you; far too much effort on my part for such a silly oversight.

comment multi-part nodes/anchors in a resistor-like symbol which has been split horizontally
The anchors text north, text south, textb north, and textb south would be useful. One use case would be if \Ratio was such that the width of a compartment approached or was less than the space occupied by it's label text; it could be labelled from above or below.

I receive the error message: Undefined control sequence. \pgf@lib@dec@computed@action ...ikz@lib@circ@Text. I have indeed loaded tikz at the beginning of the document. I'll post a minimum working example illustrating the issue.

comment multi-part nodes/anchors in a resistor-like symbol which has been split horizontally
When I include the modified symbol definition (specifically, the code found between \makeatletter and \makeatother) in a file in which I create the minimal graphic \begin{tikzpicture}[circuit ee IEC] \draw (0,0) to [resistor] (2,0);\end{tikzpicture} I receive an error message. I'm wondering if the tricks employed in order to display text on the symbol discussed above result in a requirement to do the basic stuff (such as drawing a resistor) in a slightly different way.

comment multi-part nodes/anchors in a resistor-like symbol which has been split horizontally
Do you suspect there is a way to annotate or label the node parts in the following construction: \draw (0,0) to [symbol, symbol shape ratio=.2, minimum width = 14 cm, minimum height = 1.5cm] (16,0);

comment multi-part nodes/anchors in a resistor-like symbol which has been split horizontally
Firstly, thanks very much for the explanation and example code. I'm currently testing the symbol out. I find that If I try to use the symbol \draw[symbol shape ratio=.2, minimum width = 14 cm, minimum height = 1.5cm] (midpoint.center) to [symbol={info=B \nodepart{textb} C}] (endpoint); like this, I get an an unexpected result. The \nodepart{textb} text does not appear.

comment multi-part nodes/anchors in a resistor-like symbol which has been split horizontally
Well, yes, the east and west anchors are defined and perhaps only need to be renamed. The center node, however, is not. I think that if one of the node parts were very small, I would use an arrow from the center anchor of that node part to an anchor located above and center.

comment multi-part nodes/anchors in a resistor-like symbol which has been split horizontally
The vertical dividing line should set the boundary between the node parts. The leftmost node part will have east anchors which are equivalent with the west anchors of the rightmost part. In the case of ratio being equal to one or zero, the east, center, and west nodes of the empty node part would all be equivalent with either the east or west anchors of the non-empty node part. Does that make sense?

comment Is there a mechanism to provide a dimension or scale as input to an instance of a symbol?
I have accepted your answer, thanks very much for your help here.

comment Is there a mechanism to provide a dimension or scale as input to an instance of a symbol?
I'd like to eventually convert the symbol described/illustrated above into a two-part symbol. Each compartment should have a set of anchors. I'm assuming that I should discuss this in an entirely new question, referencing this question?

I observe that the vertical line is accurately positioned, however, the positions of the anchors associated with the vertical line do not change with the value of \Ratio; they remain in the center or at the position expected when \Ratio has a value of 50.

comment Is there a mechanism to provide a dimension or scale as input to an instance of a symbol?
This is excellent, many thanks. I note that the value of the key /pgf/symbol shape ratio is passed as an option to the tikzpicture environment. If there were multiple instances of the symbol, they would all possess the same configuration (position of vertical bar/relative sizes of compartments). What I tried was this: 1) removed the symbol shape ratio=.01*\Ratio option at the opening of the tikzpicture environment. 2) Added the key = value option at the first node operation e.g. \node[symbol, symbol shape ratio=.01*\Ratio] at (0,0) (thesymbol) {\Ratio};.

comment line associated with tikz \draw operation is not obscured by objects on \backgroundpath of new shape
Thanks very much, this is what I wanted to achieve. Your pointing out that a border is needed makes sense.

comment Multi-line text retrieved from file via \input, within a newcommand declaration, passing newly declared command as argument of standard letter class
I modified my example code trying both of the suggestions made above. Each solution resulted in successful compilation. Thanks very much for the suggestions and thanks for pointing me to the catchfile package.
