I have a model using ModelBuilder that extracts data from an SDE database into a new personal geodatabase that the user creates.  I don't want to include any feature classes that have no geometry.  Is there a way to check all feature classes for geometry and delete the ones without using ModelBuilder?  The tool also extracts tables from spatial features from the SDE, is there a way to check if data exists in these tables and if not then delete them?  I am using ArcGIS 9.3.1.  Thank you.
