deleting blank line and row containing certain words in single sed command

Hi

Is it possible to do the following in a single command
Code:
/usr/xpg4/bin/sed -e '/rows selected/d' /aemu/CALLAUTO/callauto.txt > /aemu/CALLAUTO/callautonew.txt
/usr/xpg4/bin/sed -e '/^$/d' /aemu/CALLAUTO/callautonew.txt > /aemu/CALLAUTO/callauto_new.txt
exit

You can separate the command with a semi-colon:
Code:
/usr/xpg4/bin/sed -e '/^$/d; /rows selected/d' /aemu/CALLAUTO/callauto.txt > /aemu/CALLAUTO/callautonew.txt
