I have a spreadsheet that only has 497 rows.  I would like to delete all of the rows after 497. How can I do this so this?.  I would like 497 to be the last row.

Do you mean you want row 497 to be the last visible row?  If so, select cell 498 and click Ctrl + Shift + Down Arrow and then right click and select Hide.

Easy way is to go down to A498 and Shift-Ctrl-down-arrow, right-arrow, then right-click/delete.
However, Excel likes to wait until you close and re-open before it recognizes your new last row.

You can select the View as Page Break Preview, setting the Print Area until row 497. That way you won't "see" the rest of the rows down.
