I am looping through a datareader and am checking if a field is NULL

For example
           if (myReader.IsDBNull(myReader.GetOrdinal("Password")))
                    strPassword = "BLANKPASSWORD";

Now I want to check also if myReader is empty as some of the dbase fields are not null but empty

so how can I check that?
