Table data is stored in rows and columns, not "tabs".  Which client tool do you plan to use to create forms: Oracle Forms, Oracle JDeveloper, .Net, or something else?

Oracle forms 10g.

Yes you are correct. Data will be like no of tabs( 3 tabs, 4 tabs ....etc).

At run time dynamically build the tab forms based on the parameter (3 tabs or 4 tabs)

Is it possible in oracle forms 10g?

With Oracle Forms10, no you cannot "build" forms dynamically at run time.  You build the forms manually at design time, then compile them and deploy them so they can be run.  At run time, the forms can do some things dynamically, like hiding or displaying various canvases in the form.  I haven't used tabbed forms very much, so I'm not sure if certain tab pages could be hidden dynamically at run time or not.  Form blocks can certainly have their properties changed dynamically at run time.

Remember, the concept of tab pages came long after Oracle Forms was already an established product.  Oracle Forms added support for tab pages a couple versions ago, but a tab page is not a fundamental (or required) element of an Oracle Form, like a block or canvas is.

Yes, forms cannot be built dynamically at run time. You can build tab pages at design time and show or hide the tab pages based on your requirements at run time.

You can use SET_TAB_PAGE_PROPERTY to hide or show your tabs.
e.g. SET_TAB_PAGE_PROPERTY(tb_pg_id, visible, property_false);
