If count(@default-currency) = 0 evaluates to true, then count(fss/forecast/@currency) > 0 must evaluate to true.

If count(transaction/receiver-org/@ref) = 0 evaluates to true, then count(transaction/provider-org/narrative) > 0 must evaluate to true.

Example Usage

The narrative child element can be used to declare freetext for the provider-org element of a transaction.

  <transaction ref="1234" humanitarian="1">
   <transaction-type code="1" />
   <transaction-date iso-date="2012-01-01" />
   <value currency="EUR" value-date="2012-01-01">1000</value>   
   <description>
    <narrative>Transaction description text</narrative>
   </description>
   <provider-org provider-activity-id="BB-BBB-123456789-1234AA" type="10" ref="BB-BBB-123456789">
    <narrative>Agency B</narrative>
   </provider-org>
   <receiver-org receiver-activity-id="AA-AAA-123456789-1234" type="23" ref="AA-AAA-123456789">
    <narrative>Agency A</narrative>
   </receiver-org>
   <disbursement-channel code="1" />
   <sector vocabulary="2" code="111" />
   <!--Note: only a recipient-region OR a recipient-country is expected-->
   <recipient-country code="TM" />
   <recipient-region code="616" vocabulary="1" />   
   <flow-type code="10" />
   <finance-type code="110" />
   <aid-type code="A01" />
