Certainly sharing files from a Windows 7 box is a horrid nightmare mostly spent disabling settings on Windows 7.
With virtualisation software, this is done by the software, you don't "share" folders in the normal way as if you were doing it over a network. Certainly with VirtualBox, it's very easy.

I have loaded files stored on my Windows XP data drive directly into Word in Windows 7.
I have also just install the Windows XP Mode into W7 and again installed a copy of Office 2000 and again read the same files.
The only thing I would say id the the XP Mode does seem a bit on the slow side.
