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:
http://ctan.tug.org/tex-archive/info/lshort/english/
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:
http://ctan.tug.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/datatool/
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.
Best,
Axel
