Default Problem with this expression: ^\d{3}$

I'm using this regular expression
^\d{3}$
need to be able to enter combinations such as:
001
002
003
it works for all of then except:
008
009
Anybody know what the problem is?

Default

Your expression works perfectly for me, even for 008 & 009. Check again that you are testing "009" and not "009 " or anything else.
