Ace is compatible, and based on the same code base as JET. So, it is just a
newer version with more features (like XML support (ie: multi-valued
fields/joins)).

Yes...ACE is able to use the older formats without any problem (so, no
conversion is necessary). And, just like newer versions of ms-access always
converted older versions into the new format..this process also remains
unchanged for ACE....
