"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I have not had any issue =s  going forward. There are some issue going backward form 2010 to 2007 is you use any of the new 2010 features.

Note about 2010:
I find the new trusted document feature in 2010 a lot better than the trusted location issues in 2007.

The bigger issues seem to occur going from A2003 (or prior) to A2007/10 ... so, there should be minimal issues, especially since the file format is the same, which was not the case from A2003 to A2007/10
