can I do that?

I have a custom field ExternalID__c on custom object Master_Visit_Plan_Branch__c.. i created workflow to update the externalID everytime the parent .. (Master_Visit_Plan__c) create new record based on location,period,and PIC name..

I want to add error if I accidently type duplicate value before inserting.. The workflow works well, I cant save duplicate value, but I need some error popup to describe what happen
