Incorrect Syntax with xp_delete_file

What's wrong with this command? I get Incorrect Syntax near 'txt'. The odd part is that this was generated my the maintenance plan wizard....

EXECUTE master.dbo.xp_delete_file 1,N'''',N''txt'',N''2008-01-12T04:01:38''

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I also tried:
EXECUTE master.dbo.xp_delete_file 1,N'',N'txt',N'2008-01-12T04:01:38'

and get an Invalid Parameter error

you have some quotes too much:
EXECUTE master.dbo.xp_delete_file 1,N'',N'txt',N'2008-01-12T04:01:38'
