Can you give us a little more info on why you think you need to do this?  

I can't immediately see any reason to need this in Access.   Where Excel sheets are pretty much open-ended rows and columns of cells with no set definition necessary, Access is a structured database where a row is always going to be one record of data and each record contains its actual data fields in columns.

Thus my reason for asking for some background info..

I am working on creating an automated system for people other than myself, so the less steps they have to do the better.

If I can create all of these queries in Access itself, and export it to excel in as near to final format, the easier it will be on them.

Please see if this helps  

TRANSFORM  Table1.Column3
SELECT Table1.Column1
FROM Table1
GROUP BY Table1.Column1
PIVOT Table1_1.Column2;

This will transpose  Column2 using Column1 ids i.e for each column1 id it will look in Column2 and transpose it

Column1  |  Column2 |   Column3
       11       |     Value1  |        1
       11       |     Value2  |         2
       11       |     Value3  |        3

Column1_ID  |     Value1  | Value2  |  Value3
11                    |      1           |  2           |  3
