I am a total novice regarding Delphi. I am trying to build a package for eventual use in a C++ builder project (in which language I am not a novice).
I am using code that I have found for using Smart cards.
the following code fragment generates an error and I need assistance to understand why and correct it.
I am using Embarcadero RAD Studio 10.2 enterprise edition

var
  r : string;
  a : integer;
begin
  a := 1;
  while a <= Length(Input) do
    begin
    case Input[a] of
      #010       : if WantFormats then r := r + #10 else r := r + ' ';
      #013       : if WantFormats then r := r + #13 else r := r + ' ';
      #027       : if a < Length(Input) then
                     begin
                     Inc(a);
                     r := r + Extended[Ord(Input[a])+1];
                     end else r := r + ' ';
      #128..#255 : ; {<<<<<<<<< This line gerates the error }
      else r := r + Ascii[Ord(Input[a])+1];
      end;
    Inc(a);
    end;
Result := r;
end;


gives the following error message
[dcc32 Error] GsmHelper.pas(551): E2011 Low bound exceeds high bound
