Custom Validator Dynamic Error Message

I have a multi line textbox that a user can enter up to 50 codes.  Once they click the submit button, each code is validated to make sure that it is a valid code.  If any of the codes are invalid then Page.IsValid = false and none of the codes are written to the database.  

In the event of error, there is a custom validator that returns a Message that says "Invalid Line Code".  The user has requested to know which line code was invalid.  

Is there a way I can display a dynamic error message that will show the line code that is incorrect.  

This is the way the code looks now.  

<asp:CustomValidator runat="server" ID="LineCodeCustomValidator" ValidationGroup="NewAdjValGrp"

OnServerValidate="ValidateLineCode" Display="None" ErrorMessage="Valid Line Code Required"

EnableClientScript="true" />

In your event ValidateLineCode just add the line LineCodeCustomValidator.ErrorMessage = "The Error Message of Your Choice";
