Talk to the company that gave you the program. Besides non specific workouts based on your fitness and limiter, this is an issue with canned training programs as they want you to purchase books that explain the drills.
What distance you training for?
Good luck and let me know if you need anything else.

Kim, I'm guessing that it means that portion of the workout is a 200 yard/meter drill. There are many drills to use but in case you aren't familiar I'll give you a few to try: 1) finger tip drag - works on high elbow, just drag...your finger tips through the water, otherwise swimming normally, 2) Zipper - while swimming mimick zippering your side by running your thumb down the side of your body from your feet portion to your head portion, 3) Catch-Up - swim one arm at a time until you touch the other so that the right arm "catches up" with the left arm, then do the same with the left arm, 4) right arm / left arm - swim down one length of the pool only using your right arm and then back using only your left arm. The other arm, not being used, should stay in front of your body not by your side. That should get you started - at least I hope.

Thanks posting your question here. You've gotten some good answers so far. It does mean to do a 200 with a focus on form/technique etc.
If you'd like to see some drill examples, check out active.com's youtube channel. Dave Scott has some great swim videos, short & easy to understand.
