If you are going for a simple route why not just create one individual png for each number 0-9 and name the numbers you are currently using in the project a.png, b.png, c.png and then all you have to do is replace the 3 png files with your premade numbers. Simple as renaming 3 files and dragging them in the folder. That way you never even have to open animate to update it.
So basically in your comp you load in 3 images with the names
a.png, b.png, c.png
and animate them accordingly.
These A,B,C photos are now in your projects image folder.
In a sub folder you have 10 images that represent your numbers.. 0.png, 1.png, 2.png, etc.
When ever you wana change the 3 numbers in your composition all you need to do is copy the 3 numbers you'd like to use in your comp from you sub folder and paste them in your compositions image folder and re-name them to a.png, b.png, c.png and overwrite the pre existing number images.
Which put simply means you are updating the numbers in the competition just by dragging and dropping a couple images from one folder to the other.
You could even add blank png's if you wanted a double digit.
Although I should point out that there are better ways of doing this but you would need a custom script and CMS which I donno how to do or have money to have someone do for me.
