Why would this produce a 1,2,3.... down the column instead of a 01,01,01,01??  I need a value specifically of "01" but it is not copying it down?  Any ideas?  I have tried just every cell format I can find?  Can this be done without using Autofill?

    Range("J3").Select
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "01"
'Copies the formula in J3 down column J, as long as there is a value in columnG
    Set MyRange = Range(Range("J3"), Range("J" & Range("G3").End(xlDown).Row))
    Range("J3").AutoFill Destination:=MyRange
