Yes, you iteratively replace all ^p^p^p with ^p^p in Word (if it is a
one-time work).
If you need this routinely -- loop through the lines of your log file,
and skip all the empty lines.
If you want to have one line empty, set a flag each time you have it.
Reset the flag after a non-empty line is output.

This is very rough. You might want to be more formal and define a
concept of whitespace, where you decide how to treat spaces, tabs,
CR/LF and other similar stuff. But that's probably not what you are
looking for,
