That's because in this line:

>            outfiledata=open("fileName.txt","w").write(index,"-----",r)
you put "fileName.txt" in quotes - which makes it a literal, not a variable.

Try this:

>            outfiledata=open(os.path.splitext(fileName)[0] +
> ".txt","w").write(index,"-----",r)

(in other words, split fileName, take just the first part, and add ".txt" to
the end of it.)
