Use *NumberForm* to get a precise control over how many significant
figures are displayed, how many digits after the decimal point, or

f[x_] := NIntegrate[Sin[y]/y, {y, 0, x}];
OpenWrite["xx.dat", FormatType -> TextForm];
Do[Write["xx.dat", NumberForm[x, {3, 3}], "   ",
NumberForm[f[x], {3, 3}]], {x, 0.001, 1, 0.05}];
Close["xx.dat"];

will write

0.001   0.001
0.051   0.051
0.101   0.101
0.151   0.151
0.201   0.201
0.251   0.250
0.301   0.299
0.351   0.349
...     ...
