Block this step until steps finish
This step simply waits until all the step copies that are specified in the dialog have finished.
You can use it to avoid the natural concurrency (parallelism) that exists between transformation step copies.
Note: When the buffers between the steps (hops) are full, this can lead to a Transformation Deadlock. A workaround is then to increase the "Nr of rows in rowset" (Settings→Miscellaneous) or use the "Blocking" step.

Watch the following steps grid
Use this grid to list the steps to wait for. The grid has the following columns:
The name of the step to wait for.
The (0-based) copy number of the step. If the named step has an explicit setting for "Change number of copies to start", and you want to wait for all copies to finish, you'll need to enter one row in the grid for each copy, and use this column to specify which copy of the step to wait for. For the default number of copies (1), the CopyNr is always 0.
