Question help with sed / regexp

I'd like to forward the output of osql via email. I've gotten everything down except for one portion.

In the end of the osql output it gives a line like:

(1 row affected)
(2 rows affected)
(3 rows affected)
(999 rows affected)

...depending on the query given. I'd like to use sed to remove this line from the output, but I can't grasp how to do it. Any help would be appreciated.

egrep -v  "row|rows affected" osqloutputfile

Thanks that worked, though I'm using cygwin and had to do a dos2unix --d2u osqloutputfile first. Yeesh!

Thanks so much.
