In other words, any Drop-Down List is based/stored in the ‘Look Up’ Table. Each of the available ‘Look Up’, better known as ‘Drop Down’ List(s), has about 5000+ Available Records.
For Example, the ‘Studio’ List has a pre-populated List of 223 Records and it has still an additional 5000+ Available (empty) Records.
Should any of the ‘Look Up’ List(s) become full (meaning you  managed to fill out all 5000+ Records) and thus there be a need to add additional ‘Look Up’ Records, then do the following:
From the Main Switchboard, click on ‘Maintenance Switchboard’
