Is it possible to create a column in Sharepoint that you can only enter details in IF another cell contains certain data?

i.e. column name = product A
       column name = customer

restrict entry to customer so that you can only enter details in customer IF product A is not blank

You have SharePoint column Validation in SharePoint 2010 and above;

Another nice way to do this is to have Validation rules on an InfoPath form (Though you need Enterprise features for that).
