  1. Use word application scope to read the word activities
  2. use read text within that scope and get the output as text type with variable name out_text
  3. use a assign activity to remove all the spaces like this
    out_text_array = out_text.Split({“Environment.NewLine”}, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries).ToArray
  4. then use another assignaciivty
    out_final_text = string.Join(“Environment.NewLine”,out_text_array)
  5. use write range to enter the text to the word without blank line

Hope this would help you buddy
Kindly let know for any queries

Cheers @charith_wickramasing
