Eliminate blank line between header and start of text

I’m not using a header for this document. I’m compiling for Word. There’s a paragraph symbol, new line before the start of the text on each page. Is there a way to eliminate the blank line on compile?

Here’s screen shot from word with the extra line.

Thank you,

I think to know best where it is coming from, it would help to know what compile Format you are using, and within that, which Layouts (in the middle column) are assigned to the types of text that would print this way. There are a few places empty lines could be intentionally inserted into the output.
