Filetype that can be edited by both ArcGIS Pro and MS Access

Are there any file types that can be edited by both ArcGIS Pro and MS Access?

For example, use ArcGIS Pro and MS Access as front-ends for editing a common file.

  • ArcGIS Pro is good at editing and viewing things spatially.
  • Access is good at forms and subdatasheets. (A related ArcGIS Pro idea here.)
    Concurrent edits/locks are not a concern in this case.

It would be similar to what we can do with enterprise databases like Oracle. I can edit an Oracle table in both MS Access (via ODBC) and ArcGIS Pro (via a database connection).

But instead of using an enterprise database, I'm wondering if there are any local file types that would work for the same sort of thing. Either a local relational database file (similar to an .MDB or .ACCDB) or a flat file.
