I assume the PF to which you are copying them is a flat file. Would it be possible to put a marker in the blank lines of the spooled file so they aren't really blank (e.g., put an asterisk at the beginning or end of each blank line, or a period at the beginning or end of each line). It's not a great solution, but if you can't find anything better... Also, why not just write output to the PF directly? Do you really need the spooled file?
