A neat and simple answer to a simple question, and as always with yourself and a few other MathGroup regulars, very helpful.
I can't help feeling, though, every time I see a question of this type ("I am beginner for Mathematica"), that the poster has not even tried to look into the Help. In real life when I'm asked a question like this, my first response is usually to say, "Show me what you've tried."
As I've said more than once before in a similar MathGroup gripe, "Give a man a fish, feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime". (Lao Tzu, apparently.)

(That's a different thing than "evaluating it", which would not be possible since the left hand side is not the sort of expression to which you can assign a value -- and what does is to assign a value. Whereas == denotes an equality.)
Perhaps you mean something like the following:
Solve[A Log[h]/h - x == 0, h]
The result you'll get gives the solution as:
h -> -((A*ProductLog[-(x/A)])/x
This may or may not be of use to you, since ProductLog is a not an "elementary" function.
Do A and x have some specific values?
By the way, it's a bad idea to use names in Mathematica that are, or begin with, an upper-case letter -- because that risks confounding them with the names of built-in objects.
