In SharePoint 2010, you are able to create simple rules to validate the data inserted by the end users before saving a new item. These Validation Rules are created on a per-list basis and are using the same type of formulas to validate the data as when you created calculated columns.
A simple example would look like this: =[Discount]<[Cost] which would send an alert to the end user if the column Cost is less the Discount column.
Validation settings are created from the List Settings of each list.
