Let's add formula in Equation field:

Option.TimeToExpiration is variable to find TimeToExpiration, but it shows result in terms of year. But we need result to be displayed in days (like 20 days) and not in years (0.054 years). So we have to multiply it by 365 days.

Even after multiplying it by 365, it may shows result considering decimal value (example 19.20 days) that's difficult for us to digest. Instead we will prefer to round off to higher number. This can be done using maths function ceil.

In screenshot, Format N0 (N and number 0) means show me result in Integers without any decimals.
