Market *what*?

Threw an error in my magic Excel spreadsheet today. Investigation revealed that I have submitted to 243 markets in the past 5 years, and I have run out of columns in the spreadsheet.

:: boggle ::

Update: I went back and counted 269 separate items which have been submitted to those markets during that time period. That omits some nonfiction pieces, which I didn't account for precisely the same way. Total submissions is 1,012 -- darn, I passed 1,000 without noticing it sometime in the past few weeks. Also 176 first rights sales (short fiction and novels) and 794 rejections in that time period. (The math doesn't quite line up because of reprint sales/rejections being counted differently, "float" in the current inventory, and some nonfiction work.)
