'form' is a keyword for the data dictionary.

This dictionary is commonly used when creating a report using a wizard.

Compare this http://help.openerp.com/question/22334/how-to-generate-a-report-from-a-wizard/ (related Question).

Give more details to your question. What are you trying to do? When does the error occur? Have you edited/created modules or functionality?
