Formatting Numbers to 3 digit,

In a column i have numbers 1 to 999
but I would like to have as 001 to 999, I cannot format as text, becouse
another equation finds the higest number (=max(D)) from this column.
Is there any way, to have the 3 digit format keeping them as numbers?

i.e.
Col D
001
002
003
004
--
--
999
