```Jorge Zickermann  was trying to do some list manipulation.

The code below should work nicely.
Note: (I use ListA not listA)

In[41]:=
CombinedList=Transpose[{ListA,ListB,ListC}];
CombinedList=CombinedList/.{A_,B_?(#>0.68&),C_}:>{C,B,C};
ListA=Map[#[[1]]&, CombinedList]

Out[41]=
{1971.45,1973.53,1977.06,1977.06,1977.06,2044.23,2047.77,
2047.77,2047.77,2181.55,2181.55,2181.55,2244.73,2244.73,
2244.73,2305.5,2305.5,2305.5,2305.5,2363.92,2363.92,
2363.92,2363.92,2363.92,2363.92,2363.92,2363.92,
2363.92,2363.92,2363.92}

Note:
If you are very concerned about speed and not so concerned about "clean"
code you can use the following instead of the middle line:
CombinedList=CombinedList/.{_,_?(#>0.68&),C_}:>{C,0,0};

Cheers,
Ted Ersek

2410.22,2432.88,2410.22,2410.22}

Position[ListB,_?(#>0.68&)]

{{1},{2},{6}}

Having obtained the positions of certain selected elements from ListB, I
want to substitute the corresponding elements in ListA by the
corresponding elements in ListC. In other words, I want to end up with;

listA=
{1971.45,1973.53,1977.06,1977.06,1977.06,
2044.23,2047.77,2047.77,2047.77,2181.55,
2181.55,2181.55,2244.73,2244.73,2244.73,
2305.5,2305.5,2305.5,2305.5,2363.92,
2363.92,2363.92,2363.92,2363.92,2363.92,
2363.92,2363.92,2363.92,2363.92,2363.92}

Any help on how to do this is welcome. Thank you.
