you fetched those records into block items, in a tabular display i suppose, then what's the problem?
And why "RAISE FORM_TRIGGER_FAILURE"? for what purpose?

Please explain your problem in details, and follow posting guidelines.

OK, you've written that piece of code. What makes you unhappy with it? Is there any error message? If so, which one?

By the way, is there any special reason for not creating a simple database block and populating it with Forms default behaviour - executing a query? As it seems that you don't want users to modify data, run the form in QUERY ONLY mode (or set data blocks INSERT / UPDATE / DELETE ALLOWED properties to "no").

Display items (which are, I guess, part of another table, different from the data block base table) can/should be populated in the POST-QUERY trigger.
