Have you ever used a pivot table in Excel? It is the same concept.

The dataset in that screenshot doesn't seem to contain useful data for a matrix.  Building further on what you've done there, if you'd put PostalCode in the Values box each row would show a phone number and some sums of postal codes (unless phone number is unique, which is probably the case here).  As you can see, doesn't make much sense does it?

The following MSDN page shows a more suitable example in which sales numbers get summed by region in the columns and product category in the rows: Matrices (Report Builder and SSRS)
