Upgrading to 2010 from 2007, compatibility

Experts,

I have a db mainly developed in 2007.  I am upgrading to 2010.  I have heard about the date picker not being compatible.  Is this true or is it not compatible in 2013?  I have some reports and forms built with the report wizard.  

Is it advised to reimport all object into a blank 2010 db?  
Any other known issues I am likely to encounter?  

thank you

In A2007, you had MSCAL.OCX which contains the date picker.
In A2010, this is no longer supported and has been replaced with the Built-In Date Picker, available on any Text Box, and will display anytime the Control Source is a date/time data type.

"Is it advised to reimport all object into a blank 2010 db"
This is always the best approach. And before you do this, be SURE your app Compiles in A2007. If not, find issue(s) and fix.

It's really hard to say. Maybe, maybe not.
Be sure your app is in a Trusted Location, and that Macro Security is set to Low (always enable macros setting).

Is this app used by multiple users?
If so you may want to hold of moving the development machine to 2010.

This is because once you start making design changes to the app in 2010, you may not be able to convert the DB back to the 2007 format, ...(if any 2007 users are having problems...)
