If your ultimate goal is to be able to write things that integrate well on the desktop with Office, seriously consider learning C# instead of Java. Although this kind of thing is not absolutely impossible with Java, it's vastly harder to do than in a .NET language. Doing it in Java will entail various workarounds and compromises, so if you're just starting out, consider taking another path.
