Combine multiple sed

Would like to convert it to one line

   sed -i -e '/./,$!d' term1.txt
   sed -i '2d' term1.txt
   sed -i '/^$/Q' term1.txt
   cat term1.txt>> test1.txt

Appreciate if someone could point out the error
sed -i -e '/./,$!d' -e '2d' -e '/^$/Q'  term1.txt
cat term1.txt>> $test1.txt

On similar lines would like to combine
cat j| sed 's/^[ \t]*//;s/[ \t]*$//' > j1
cut -f1 -d ' ' jout > jout2
grep -v "at" jout2 > jout3
grep -v "bt" jout3 > jout4
grep  "_box" jout4 > jout4box
grep -v "_box" jout4 > jout4cmd

I have been able to combine a few :
cat j| sed 's/^[ \t]*//;s/[ \t]*$//'|cut -f1 -d ' ' > j2
grep -v "ar" j2|grep -v "bi"|grep  "_box" >  jout4box
grep -v "ar" j2|grep -v "bi"|grep -v "_box" > jobsout4cmd

I think the first sed should include the file name and the last one should direct out the file

Why is this not working

sed -e '/./,$!d' -e '2d' -e '/^$/Q' <  term1.txt > test.txt

---------- Post updated at 04:36 PM ---------- Previous update was at 04:09 PM ----------

the problem is with the '2d'....I am still looking into it

Please wrap code lines in "code" tags (not "ICODE" tags)!
You can replace cat j| by the more efficient <j (not supported by C-shells).
You can replace grep -v "ar" j2|grep -v "bi" by the more efficient egrep -v "ar|bi" j2.
sed -e '/./,$!d' -e '2d' -e '/^$/Q' <  term1.txt > test.txt

works for me.
Do you get an error?

The objective of 2d is to delete the second line after the first sed deletes all the blank lines at the top. The third sed deletes all lines after it encounters a blank line. The first sed and the third sed are working

the file looks like
text text
text not req something
text not req 
text nt req

out put required

The difference is that the independent commands each work on a modified file, while the combined commands work on the same line of the file.

If you'd describe what you want to achieve, we'd be able to help you. Please explain in detail, and post sample in- and outputs. Your output above definitely cannot be derived from the input you gave with the commands you gave.

The deletion of the initial empty lines does not change the line numbers. The 2d is the 2nd (already deleted) line.
That means the current sed scripts need two sed. Which can be connected by a pipe:
sed '/./,$!d' < term1.txt | sed '2d; /^$/Q' > test.txt
