All,

how would you handle having two persons who work on
creating/designing/editing a DB?

TIA

FYI I'm not in this situation but just in case.

Simultaneously or consecutively?

If simultaneously, one approach might be to allow both to open the same
file, but the first one on an object will 'lock' it from the other.

If consecutively, you'd need a way to ensure that PersonB doesn't start
until PersonA is done ... that's a matter of communication.

There are tools that help with the communication ...

About the only way this would work if the two work simultaneously is
that both work on separate front ends. I have worked on a database
while someone else (unknown to me) was changing things... You'll do
that exactly once in your life before you swear never to do it again.
If you want to merge the databases into a third (safer that way!)
later you can.
