There are tons of swap pricing xls sheets when you google "swap pricing xls". Best you download some and play around with the numbers. Your question is way too broad to respond to it meaningfully. Your best bet is to price a swap on a spreadsheet following some of the examples. – Matt Wolf Dec 17 '12 at 6:01
@vehomzzz should we assume your swap is a plain vanila IR swap? – bonCodigo Dec 17 '12 at 8:03
