Did you look at the online help for Application.echo?

I assume you will have code that detects the entry of wrong/bad data.  Along with that code, you can add an application.echo statement that will display the text you want to show the user.  The text is a parameter of the Echo method.

"online help" -- pressing F1 key when you are editing code will display help information about the word where the cursor is (or selected text).
