When you have something more specific come back and give us real description. In the mean time take a look at the find change grep queries.
wow grep queries look difficult but i'll try to find what i need.
in the meantime here is a screen grab to explain my dilema better prehaps [see below]
the screen grab is from the word doc that i want to import to indesign cs3.
the red dots are by me and i put them there to indicate where the doc creator has pressed the return key to make a line space between each line.
i want to be rid of them without manually deleting them.
Look at the pre-defined grep queries. You’ll find a replace multiple returns with a single return. Run that on your document.

i suddenly feel a warm fuzzy feeling inside!
that's InDesign Menu > Edit > Find/Change for anyone who didn't get it.
thanks again Bob!
