Nil error for something I cannot track down

Attached is a zip of my WIP of RepByZone, as copying my Lua code will take up a lot of space in a thread. I do understand the error, but cannot explain what is causing it to happen. The variable that should have data is on line 141 of Core-Retail.lua, in the Onitialize function, and refreshed on line 6 of Options.lua just in case the user has changed something. Why Options.lua cannot see that variable, I don't know.

I need fresh eyes, methinks. The error dump is below.

Lua Code:
  1. 1x RepByZone\Options-Options.lua:77: bad argument #1 to 'format' (string expected, got nil)
  2. [string "=[C]"]: in function `format'
  3. [string "@RepByZone\Options-Options.lua"]:77: in function `member'
  4. [string "@Ace3\AceConfig-3.0-3\AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0-81.lua"]:221: in function <...nfig-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0.lua:169>
  5. [string "@Ace3\AceConfig-3.0-3\AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0-81.lua"]:1211: in function <...nfig-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0.lua:1121>
  6. [string "@Ace3\AceConfig-3.0-3\AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0-81.lua"]:1652: in function `FeedGroup'
  7. [string "@Ace3\AceConfig-3.0-3\AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0-81.lua"]:1577: in function <...nfig-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0.lua:1561>
