Swapping units

Question about the rules of the game? Experienced Diplomacy veterans will help you! There is also a Common Questions section.
Forum rules
In addition to the general Forum Guidelines (see here: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/view ... 30&t=15441), there are additional rules for posting in this forum.
1. Members should not refer directly to a specific situation in an active game. It is usually possible to provide an example of a similar situation elsewhere on the board.
2. It follows that links, images, game name and/or number should not be added to a post if the game is active.
3. Questions should only request rules be clarified and not request advice about how to resolve a situation.
4. When answering a question, members should restrict themselves to answering the question and not give advice on how to get around the situation.
Posts which break these rules will be subject to editing or removal; see here: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/view ... 13&t=42845

But there is a longer answer. With a convoy, you can accomplish a swap as follows:
F MAO c A Spa-Por
F Por-Spa (whichever coast)

Those are legal and effects the swap.

Realize that you are using three units to effect the movement, though.

(Aside, I love it when I see "effects" used correctly!)

He who arises to kill you, arise earlier and kill him first.
