dan have you tried typing it in 'word' or 'office' and done a grammar check on it? I've just had pc wiped/flattened after haivng a new hard drive fitted and so havent reloaded word back on yet, or I would have checked it for you.

Both are correct - but should be used in different ways:

Swam - is the past tense of 'swim'
Swum - is the past participle of 'swim'.

So you can say:

'You swam two miles this week', but not 'You've swam two miles this week'

- or -

'You've swum two miles this week', but not 'You swum two miles this week'.
