how to rpm specific file to install?

There is a way in rpm to install a specific file only if some action is made? example : there is a rpm that contain 2 files /etc/rpm-file1 and /etc/rpm-file2. on the system /etc/rpm-file1 is already exist but /etc/rpm-file2 is not exist.
Now we install the rpm via rpm -i and I want that the rpm will install only /etc/rpm-file2 is it possible?

There is a way to install specific file of the rpm by getting status of a script that will execute before installing a specific file?
