For my web form, I have PHP using the Zend Framework, then i am using mysql for the db.  I have one field on the form where i need the application to output a better error message to the user if the data is entered incorrectly.  How can I add a custom error message to send to the user if their input on that field is wrong?

You have to create a function to do that based on your requirements , for example if you are expecting  numbers then the user entered letters, you will need to use a function to verify that  ( you will need to use regular expression ) . and tell the user what mistakes they have done .

Personally, I'd handle validation on the client side using jQuery ValidationEngine plugin:
https://github.com/posabsolute/jQuery-Validation-Engine

Very easy to use and the form does NOT have to be submitted for validation to occur. Validation rules can also be written to use ajax calls to test server side validation such as account existance, etc.
