Sync a existing SharePoint list to Excel 2007

I know MS has an add in that allows you to create a new SP list that is syncronized with the excel workbook however it doesn't allow you to syncronize excel to an existing list.  I have a well developed list that i would like to be able to edit in excel and syncronize back to the SP list.  I did some online research and it looks like 2003 has this exact functionality but 2007 only has this lame add in.  

Does anyone know of a workaround to this or do we simply need to down grade to 2003 to get the functionality back?

I believe you found the best two solutions - downgrade or use the add-in.

Another solutions that is typically used, is to delete the list and have Excel push the list back to SharePoint.
