How to pull a two digit Fiscal Week from the system date.

I have a database where I query records up to the prior fiscal week. The data contains a two-digit fiscal week, (ex: 01 - 52).  When I get the fiscal week from the system date, it comes back as a 1 digit week.  At least, until I get to fiscal week 10.  The formula that I am using is:

DatePart("ww",Date())

I need to find a way to embed a zero for weeks 1 - 9 and not for the weeks 10 - 52.  In the formula above, even though I use "ww", I will only get one digit for the fiscal week.

Is there a way to do this?

Format(DatePart("ww",Date()),"00")
