Here is a starting point using datatool. I won't discuss the design of the check (layout) as it is a candidate for a separate question. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[a4paper,textheight=5in,left=1in,right=1in]{geometry} %% 5in only for demo \usepackage{xcolor}% \usepackage{adjustbox} % \usepackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents*}{names.csv} ...

Don't use a random template! it's not complicated to build your own LaTeX-preamble and for the things you want to do you don't need more than say 10 packages and 10-20 options. Work with minimal preambles for better readability and less likelihood of conflicts. I would recommand the Koma-Skript classes, scrartcl would fit for your points 2,4 and 5. ...

For slides & presentations, you should definitely use the Beamer class. And I agree with MaxNoe, that using random templates from the internet isn't really a good way to learn.

My example shows how to do this task without any LaTeX packages. Suppose, we have the file names.csv in the format shown in Kumars answer. % in preamble: \newread\infile \def\printletters #1 {\bgroup \endlinechar=-1 \openin\infile=#1 \read\infile to\tmp \printlettersA } \def\printlettersA{\ifeof\infile \egroup \else \read\infile to\tmp ...

If my guess is right, you are from Universiti Malaya right? Use the template from http://latex-my.blogspot.com/2011/06/university-of-malaya-thesis-class.html You can modify the .cls to your own need. Hope that helps!
