Ok, thank you. I'm waiting for scripting possibilities ...
Labeling is not a solution for me, because Field2 depends on Field1 only
when it has "A". If Field1 has different values, then Field2 must remain
empty and still writeable.

You can do this by adding value labels to Field1:

label for "A" is "K"

Then, on the Extended tab, choose to copy the label to Field2 Make
Field2 NoEnter

Scripting is not yet implemented, but is coming. This will allow much
greater flexibility.
