Return text in Column A if Column B and Column K match

Greetings Experts:

I need help in doing what should be very simple...I would like a formula or
a macro that will return the text from Column A and plant in Column L if
Column B and Column K are the same.

Example: B = 12345 K=12345 Text in Column A is entered in Column L

=IF(B2=K2,A2,"")
I assume you want a blank in L if B and K are not the same?

Return text in Column A if Column B and Column K match

With a formula...

Entered in L1 then copied down as needed:

=IF(B1=K1,A1,"")
