How to Return from within a Table[]-Command?

I wanted to scan trough al List, building a new
List, but aborting, if one Element of the first
List violates a special Condition ... 
say for example:

Divide2[L_List] := Module[{},
        Return["vector not valid."];
      , {i, 1, Length[L]}



But this results:

In[13]:= Divide2[{2,3,a}]
Out[13]= {1/2, 1, Return["vector not valid."]}

Wich is of course not what I want.
