MSWord wildcard — a?b | a??b | a???b --> a?{1,3}b


While using Microsoft-Word wildcard ( reg ex, regex, regexp, regular expression ),
a?b a??b a???b all seem to work fine.
How can I merge the 3 search strings into one?
It's apparently not a?{1,3}b
I've tried this in two completely different environments, with the same result.
For example, for this file: http://nfbnet.org/pipermail/blindlaw_nfbnet.org/attachments/20140121/5fffc4d6/attachment.doc
Searching for a?b yields 0 hits.
Searching for a??b yields 33 hits.
Searching for a???b yields 106 hits.
But
Searching for a?{1,3}b yields 366 hits.
What's the correct search string for what I want to do
(to get the ~139 hits)? Thank you.
