Will there be any issues using my external hard drive on new 64 bit windows7 rig?

It was formatted on W7 32 bit and only used for bulk storage and backups.

There should be no problem at all. It does not matter where it was formatted - hopefully NTFS. The Fat32 should only be used for sticks.

Thanks WHS I was just double checking. Yes it is NTFS.
