Reading past EOF error

jwgain0jwgain0 Posts: 2Member
The following code compiles fine, but when I run the program it prints all the items in the file and then gives the following error: attempt to read past end of file `data.txt'

DataFile : text;
data : Integer;
Filename : String;

Filename := "data.txt";
Assign(DataFile, Filename);
Reset(DataFile); {Reset(x) - means open the file x}

read(Datafile, data);
write(" ");
until Eof(Datafile)

I also tried
While not Eof(Datafile) do
instead of repeat/until but it still does the same thing.

data.txt is attached
