Besides the two books Alan recommended, which are my constant  
references in my work, and the excellent TUG India tutorials, I would  
advice you first to take a look at lshort.pdf here:


and then, for what I understand of your needs, Dr. Nicola Talbot's  
amazing datatool package (which, I must confess, I haven't used yet);  
see datatool.pdf:


It uses internally another LaTeX package, which I use constantly:  
TikZ; see examples of it here:


LaTeX learning curve is steep, but, no doubt, worthwhile.
