Hi. I don't have a solution, but just an idea.
I might break the problem up like this...
equ = {alpha[n + 1, j] == Sum[alpha[n, m]*Gamma[c*j - c*m + 1]/Gamma[j - m + 1], {m, n, j - 1}],
alpha[0, j] == Gamma[c*j + 1]/Gamma[j + 1]}
Then...
RecurrenceTable[equ, alpha, {n, 0, Nmax}, {j, n + 1, Nmax + 1}]
According to Help, a RecurrenceTable generates a list of values.
I may be wrong, but I don't think you can generate values, as both variables c and Nmax are undefined.
Perhaps you meant to use RSolve, and then generate a table?
