Thanks mmarinov
This answer gave me what I needed, but it actually gives the text  of all the validators, whether they are valid or not.

I am loading a form from XML data and will automatically move to another page if there is no error. However, if there is an error, I have to save the errors.  I refined the accepted answer so that I see only the validators where Isvalid = false.

 Validate("UserInfo")
        If Not IsValid Then
            Dim RxErrors As String = ""
            Dim vc As ValidatorCollection = Page.Validators
            Dim Index As Integer

            For Index = 0 To vc.Count - 1
               If vc.Item(Index).IsValid = False Then
                    RxErrors += "<Error>" & (vc(Index).ErrorMessage) & "</Error>"
                End If

            Next
            If RxErrors.Trim.Length > 0 Then
                RxErrors = "<Errors>" & RxErrors & "</Errors>"
            End If


        End If
