If I execute the Job manually I get the following error in the log and no email

Parameters raw (from db settings): instanceId=[573]

Parameters parsed (and passed to API method): a:2:{s:7:"version";i:3;s:10:"instanceId";s:5:"[573]";}

Full message: Finished execution of Report sender with result: Failure, Error message: A > fatal error was triggered: is not of type String

I've tried it with or without the optional format option, but I'm not convinced I'm entering the parameters correctly because although I can see the instructions I haven't actually seen a working version that I can examine the parameters on. Hopefully someone will point me in the right direction or tell me what else I'm doing wrong.

It's Ok I was not removing the square brackets in the example, I found a working example here - civiCRM Cron only run one mail_report scheduled jobs?

All working now :)
