I finally got this to work, based on some examples,  How do I rewrite this to remove the sheet tab reference?  I know that these lines can be consolidated into a couple lines and do the same thing.  Please advise and thanks.

'Populate column B, copies value in B2 of sheet declared down B
'For as many rows that are in columnG, then copy/paste special values
    Range("B2").Select
    With Sheets("Kentwood Order Entry Sheet") 'the sheet tab name in SALESORDERDOWNLOAD.XML
        .Range("B3:B" & .Cells(.Rows.Count, "G").End(xlUp).Row).Formula = "=(B2)"
    End With
    Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    Selection.Copy
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats, Operation:= _
        xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False

Assuming that the sheet that you want the code to work in is your current one, delete lines 4 and 6 and rewrite line 5 as follows:

Range("B3:B" & Cells(activesheet.Rows.Count, "G").End(xlUp).Row).Formula = "=(B2)"

You also don't need line 3.

Here's an edited version of your code.  I presumed you were on the "Kentwood" sheet the entire time:
'Populate column B, copies value in B2 of sheet declared down B
'For as many rows that are in columnG, then copy/paste special values
    Sheets("Kentwood Order Entry Sheet").Activate
    Range("B3:B" & Cells(Rows.Count, "G").End(xlUp).Row).Formula = "=B2"

    Range("B2", Range("B2").End(xlDown)).Copy
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats
