Transform creates a crosstab query, but it's difficult to understand the syntax (at least for me). If you have a copy of Access, then you can create a new query and switch to SQL view, and then copy/paste that into the query window. Assuming your table structure matches what the query expects, you'll be able to work with the query to get things right.
