In a MS Access 2003 query, I am trying to extract a two-digit month from a birth date field.  

1)  When I use DatePart('m', [birth_date]) it displays the month 1- 12.  Months 1-9 are only one digit.

2)  When I use DatePart('mm', [birth_date]) it displays the error message "Invalid Procedure Call".

How do I extract a two-digit month from a birth date field in a MS Access 2003 query?
