Trying to save multiple file types to same location while using the same file name.

I'm trying to build a tool using model builder that I can use to input an Excel spreadsheet and create a shapefile and a KML that saves in the same folder and has the same file name. I want the KML file to automatically default to whatever my output is for the shapefile but i think I am going to have to use python to figure out this last part. I'm really new to this and just now learning writing script.



Can someone help me with the last portion of this script? I would really appreciate it.
