Default How to I delete blank lines/labels in the mail merge function?

I have input names and addresses to create a mailing list in mail merge and
gone through the process to create labels. I have several blank lines at the
beginning of my source document, which results in several blank labels. How
can I delete these blank lines?

Do you have a header set in normal.dot? Headers in this file cause the label
sheet to be thrown out of alignment. Temporarily rename normal.dot to
oldnormal.dot and re-run the merge process -

Thanks--I really feel "dumb". All I had to do was remove the check marks
from those blank spaces--amen! Thanks.
