Query That doesn't include zero length strings and nulls in access

What is the proper Access Query/SQL Statement in Access to get a result set with no nulls and no zero length strings (in a specified field) in the result set. As an example below I'd like to find all contacts from tblContact with a title specified (i.e. no nulls or zero length strings):

SELECT DISTINCTROW tblContact.*
FROM tblContact
WHERE (((tblContact.Title) Is Not Null))
WITH OWNERACCESS OPTION;

Can't seem to get this one.. Thoughts?
