It has been a while since my last post. I've been very busy managing a demanding project.
The good news is that I finally managed to create a decent Gantt Chart in Excel 2007. With that I do mean a Chart object in Excel, not just some manual tinkering with Excel cells. This is a great improvement because the chart has a dynamic layout and timescale and is much prettier!

Here's the Excel 2007 template, have fun!
