comment How can latex help me format and present lots of data in a report?
I think the headline of the question puts too much focus on the domain (security reporting) and not enough on the problem (lots of data to be presented) to be found later by other users.

comment Tip on how to make a visually good table
I believe Edward Tufte recommends to color every 3 rows rather than every other row using the following argument: it is less noisy, and reading a row one recognises whether the row is at top, middle, or bottom of such a colouring.

Are the 1300 copies identical or are they numbered or otherwise identifiable?

comment Vector vs. Raster: Is there any reason to include (larger) vector images into a LaTeX document?
I'd strongly to suggest to embed vector graphics because it retains more information and use post-processing to reduce file size on a per-case basis. Resolution is only going up and maybe some day you want to create a poster from a page.

I looked at your file with cpdf, a command-line tool for PDF processing, and managed to shrink it to 121kB. While it does have an option to remove unused code, it didn't seem to find the overhead.

When saving files from Illustrator you can specify in the save dialog unter "Adobe PDF Preset" to use "Smallest File Size". Use this for the files that go into production but keep another copy for editing.

Corrected small grammar problem. Not yet clear what "with function" is supposed to mean.

comment Define function in pseudocode
Please provide a minimal working example, i.e., complete code that either works or that you expect to work. Right now we have no idea what package you are using that provides the algorithmic environment.

comment Compiling hevea-2.19 with Objective Caml compiler v3.11.2
The current version of OCaml is 4.02.1. Is there a particular reason why you are using 3.11.2?

comment Formatting table using booktabs
Sorry, Safari hadn't shown me the horizontal scroll bar and I had missed the header for the last column in the code.

comment Formatting table using booktabs
Amazing how compact the code is. I would suggest to left-align header of the first column, though.

comment Formatting table using booktabs
Where is \thead defined? I solves a problem that I commonly have with table headers. BTW: code and image don't seem to fit together for the last column.

comment I want to take a CSV file, process the data, and generate a report file, where can I go to learn how to do this?
Generating the report from the CSV file could require advanced LaTeX techniques. Consider an alternative approach: generate a LaTeX file using some programming language that you already know. This might be not as satisfying but could be a lot quicker.
