Field Validation Question, evoking field validation in a script before it proceeds.

I have a question on field validation.  Currently, I wrote validation into the scripts before it checks and copies records over to the main Database table for data entry.  I know, there are lots of options within file make in the field options to put in validation criteria.  However, is there a way to evoke field validation in a script before in proceeds?

I see that, if I'm currently in a field i can click the button to submit my entry to the main table and it doesn't check validation.  If i click out of the field it checks validation. 


In efforts for performance and lessen script steps, it would be nice to be able to call a validation check in the script rather then write the code in the script.  But then again, maybe its better to do the validation manually in my script.  Asking for your thoughts and help once again.  This step is too keep data entry idiot proof, as often hard as it is to do.


Thank you in advance.
