If you must access the file in W7 one way around is to create a partition in FAT so the two systems can share it, (it has its limitations specially with size) as for Linux, it does have no problems accessing your W7 partition and data therefore you can have a file you save and use in windows, if you boot into Linux and you want to use it just look for it. (depending on your settings the file/folder may be just accessible with administrator permissions)

Are these two physically distinct, separate machines, or are you dual-booting on the same machine?

If they are separate, I would suggest using the built-in samba sharing support (Windows supports SMB/CIFS natively)

What distribution of linux are you using, or perhaps more directly, what desktop environment are you using?

If you are dual-booting on the same machine, rjq's post pretty well covers it
