I would like to use ListLinePlot with data from excel file but it does not work! However, ListPlot is working fine?! Below is the code I used

colorBar[arg_] := Blend[{Red, Green, Blue}, Rescale[arg, {-1, 1}]];
postE = Table[{x, 0.05 + Cos[x]^2, Cos[x]}, {x, 0, 30, 0.05}];  
ListLinePlot[{Style[{#[[1]], #[[2]]}, colorBar[#[[3]]]] & /@ postE}]   
ListPlot[{Style[{#[[1]], #[[2]]}, colorBar[#[[3]]]] & /@ postE}]

    $\begingroup$ What is the definition of colorBar? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Please define "but it does not work!". Are there error messages? Also, you'd certainly need to define colorBar prior to using it. Moving the colorBar definition to the beginning of your code above produces a perfectly fine graph. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @JimB, ListLinePlot gives only one color but I need the color to be as in the ListPlot $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ But that's what you need to describe in your question. "it does not work!" doesn't explain anything. $\endgroup$

The color of the line in ListLinePlot is controlled by the option ColorFunction

postE = Table[{x, 0.05 + Cos[x]^2, Cos[x]}, {x, 0, 30, 0.05}];

colorBar[arg_] := Blend[{Red, Green, Blue}, Rescale[arg, {-1, 1}]]

If you know the third element is Cos[x] then

ListLinePlot[postE[[All, 1 ;; 2]],
 ColorFunction -> Function[{x, y}, colorBar[Cos[x]]],
 ColorFunctionScaling -> False]

enter image description here

If you don't know the functional value then use

ListLinePlot[postE[[All, 1 ;; 2]],
 ColorFunction -> 
  Function[{x, y}, colorBar[postE[[Position[postE[[All, 1]], x][[1, 1]], 3]]]],
 ColorFunctionScaling -> False]

enter image description here
