Mail Merge remove blank line

I have used mail merge for a number of years without an issue. Our company updated to Office 2010 and I was able to find everything ..well almost

We were sending  mail to a gorup of people who may or may not have a bussiness name or additional address informaion.

I know that in Word 2003
 there was a way to suppress blank lines if you were printing labels. Can someone tell me where this is at in Word 2010 Mail Merge?

Example if one person has a Bussiness nae and another does not you would not want the black line to show up (on the label)  on the person who does not have one

All the formatting is now based on style sets and this very useful switch seems to have disappeared. If you select the address block and 'format, paragraph' and change 'spacing' before/after to 0 it wont leave a hole where the (non existent) line is. Also check line spacing is set to 1.

Its a pest because I had to fiddle with the entire document but once I got it setup I saved it as a defined style set and now its relatively painless

I miss the switch tho
