I did something like this using iReport but you could use almost any 
reporting engine/app you like. What you need to know is the relation 
between tickets -> transactions -> attachments and how to map various 
numerical id's to names etc.
One could write a mason component which would do the same but going 
directly to the database proved, for me, to be simpler and faster, YMMV.
