Estimate of how long it will take to develop an Access database.

I have a 5MB Excel spreadsheet that (for reasons listed below) I'd like to convert into an Access database. My database knowledge = zero. ( I work with them but do not know how to design, develop, code for, or administer.) No one in-office at my company has this skillset either, so I will be hiring a temp. Since the dataset is so small, I can't imagine this taking very long, but again, my database knowledge = zero. I need to tell the temp agency how long to contract this person. What timeframe should I give?
Using Access because:
we're an MS shop
need to allow multiple users access (but less than 10)
Thanks for your help! Apologies in advance if I've failed to provide necessary info.
