Default Automatically delete a line if nothing on it??

Hey guys,
Is it possible to have MS Word automatically check a line for characters and then delete that line if no characters are found on it (except the null / space bar character obviously)?

I am using a Word XML 2003 document to import data and concatenate the finished product into a word doc for mailing to customers.

For example, if I'm importing this:


and the database I'm using only contains data for the firstname and title (doesn't have his last name) of the person, then I'd want it to print this:

Technical Production Assistant

NOT this:


Technical Production Assistant

So is there some special syntax or command I can put after the importing element of each line (in the word 2003 xml file), so it will delete that line if there are no real characters that are merged to it in the final .doc file?
