I've only begun using InDesign's Data merge function but have considerable experience in databases. The 'Remove Blank Lines for Empty Fields does not seem to work in CC2018. In most cases it is putting a blank space in the field, even though there is no space in the data file.
Our work around is a series of find and replace runs on the merged file.
Find Return Space Return (^p ^p) and Replace with Return (^p) - gets rid of double returns with a leading space on the 2nd line.
