I have data in x,y.
I have plotted x,y in log scale in both axises
but I did not getting smooth plot.
How to get it like excel plot.
please find the attached data and pics of the plot
Figure01 from MATLAB
Figure02 from Excel
I dont have signal processing tool.

I used following code but I did not get plot like figure02
>> xq = (0.25:0.001:32);
>> V = interp1(X, Y1, xq, 'spline');
>> hold on
>> loglog(xq,V,'r')

If you want a smooth line in the loglog domain, you should interpolate in that domain as well.

How about increasing the number of data by using interpolation?:

The code below generates some example data and then interpolates the data in the loglog domain.
%generate some example data
Y1=randi([15 25],1,numel(X)).*exp(X./15);
xq = (0.25:0.001:32);
V = exp(interp1(log(X), log(Y1), log(xq), 'spline'));
loglog(X,Y1,'.b')%plot orignal data
hold on
loglog(xq,V,'r')%add interpolation
hold off

But I want plot like Figure02(which is genereted by excel).

I didn't use your data, but generated some random data. Did you try using your data and my code?
