MS Access Report/Chart

I have a database setup to collect results of surveys on seminars.  There are different seminars, and 9 different items to track.  The 9 items are in groups of 3 - first group reponses are Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair and Poor; 2nd group are Very Likely, Somewhat Likely and Not Likely, 3rd group are Agree, Neutral and Disagree. I have set up forms to collect results, and that works fine.  What I need to do next is to be able to tabulate the results by seminar and rating, and create reports and charts from that.  

I am finding it had to summarize the results by rating -- I think this should be fairly simple, but having trouble getting to the right results. Crosstab queries do not work; I cannot group by rating. I tried to create a summary query to count the ratings, but need to create an individual query for each of the 9 items, and then combine them into one query, which I think is much too cumbersome.  Does anyone know of any easier way to accomplish this?  

Attached is sample of my data - first tab shows the table that holds the survey results. 2nd tab is a sample of what I am trying to accomplish. I would eventually want to use those results to create graphs and reports by seminar or for all seminars.

Thank you.

See if this is what you're looking for. I added a table call ratings which is used to group the results. qrySurvey_Results uses a formula that gives a value of 1 if it matched the rating, I.E.:

Speaker_Skills: Sum(IIf([SpeakerSkills]=[Rating],1,0))

Those values are then totaled up for each seminar ID and rating.
