tabulate an expression in arbitrary precision

I am new to MATHEMATICA, and I am looking for advice. 
I have access to MATHEMATICA 6.0.
I need to tabulate values of a certain expression involving error function Erf[x], for a number of x values.
The problem is that I need to do these calculations in
arbitrary precision (that is I want to be able to control
the number N of significant digits). Can anybody show me some examples of how this might be done? I stress I know
nothing about MATHEMATICA. I want the results to be displayed and saved in the form of a table having two columns, where the first column contains x values, and
the second column contains the corresponding values of the expression, with all N significant digits.
