The layout of your list is odd, you're asking it to group the second column but not the first.  Unusual, but still fairly straightforward; you just have to take a couple of extra steps.

First off, create a "list" and bring the three fields you want into it in the order you want.  Then, select the list object and go to the "Grouping and Sorting" property, and tell it to "sort" the type first.  Voila, you should have the output you're looking for.

Don't use a crosstab.
The first image above is just a simple listing with no crosstab.

You need to use a list object, not a crosstab.

Which DB are you using ?

You can convert your query to get your output using Unpivot if you are using SQL Server.
