In a form in tabular format Emp details are displayed

Adjacent to the table i want to put a Sno display item showing
1 for 1st employee
2 for 2nd employee ......

without using a trigger
if its not possible without the trigger then how with a trigger

One way would be to write a POST-QUERY block-level trigger as
:this_block.sno := :system.trigger_record;

Let me just get this

Your saying to create a display item called sno and write a post query trigger at block level ex block1

:block1.sno:=:system.trigger_record;

what is this trigger_record here means

how will this populate the sno adjacent to employees in a tabular format

It is ":SYSTEM.TRIGGER_RECORD" we are talking about. It is one of system variables available in Forms. What does it do? Open Forms Online Help System, search for it and you'll know.
