check the section on ZSQL in the Zope Book to understand how ZSQL works  
but I suggest you proceed as follows.
Pass your form into a PythonScript to run checks pretty much like this:

request = context.REQUEST

for item in request.form.keys():

if no_errors:
	return context.thank_you_page()

	return context.error_page()
