Help with ERROR(ORPSIM-16517)

I'm not sure what the error is referring to. Can someone look at the output file and tell me?

ERROR(ORPSIM-16517): The fourth argument of the transistor in the netlist starts with a number. If it is the substrate pin of a transistor, provide a model name. If it is a model, change the first character of the model name from number to an alphabet.

You should change the fourth argument in Q3. That is what you have:

Q_Q3     N03359 N03115 +12V 2N3906

So, if it is a substrate pin, provide a model name. If it is a mode, change the first character to an alphabet. For example:

Q_Q3     N03359 N03115 +12V N23906.

With the netlist you sent it is difficult to offer a better solution/answer. So if you send the circuit, it would help.
