    If you read the description on the linked page and you don't see a use case for this step, have a look at the sample transformation.
    If you still don't see how this step can help you, just wait until a real world task is assigned to you, and try to remember this step when you need it.
    It's always better to look for a solution when having a problem and not the other way around.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    use append stream when u want to append 2 data sources in ur transformaton e.g. if u have s1 and s2 as 2 data sources
    s1 having c1 as column which contain a b c as values
    s2 having c1 as column which contain d e f as values
    after using append stream u will get result set of a b c d e f

    lalgourav, I think you're mistaking Append streams with Merge Join. Append Streams must have 2 streams with the exactly same makeup (i.e: "Field1 - String", "Field2 - Number", etc... must be the same in both).

    And it APPENDS the streams, it doesn't merge s1+s2 into abcdef, as you mentioned.

    As the "IMPORTANT" says at the end of the wiki page...
    Important: If you don't care about the order in which the output rows occur, you can use any step to create a union of 2 or more data streams.
    From what I've seen, except for viewing pleasure, there's no real use for Append Stream step.
