Simplest way to generate many chart images from a csv?

I have been looking at Chartbuilder
as a means to generate chart images for clients. We make them a video and instream advertise it. We report monthly impressions and views of the video. What would be the best way to present this data?

I like how simple to use Chartbuilder is but I would like to skip having to paste in the data. I am thinking that I may need to create a database so that I may most easily export a particular client's data than a cobbled together spreadsheet. Would either Chartbuilder, d3.js or another tool be best for generating a decent looking line graph illustrating a video's monthly impressions and views? Right now the reports my organization sends out are just spreadsheets. We're moving toward sending out a generated chart image but I'd like to try and make this process as automated as possible. I would like to avoid working with databases but i'll take any recommendations. I'm also somewhat clueless as the best ways to present this data. I like the look of either two line graphs or one a line graph and the other a column. Any suggestion is welcome.
