Is it possible to extract more than one attribute using Extract Multi Values to Points?

I noticed the Extract Values to Points allows the user to extract all attributes within a raster dataset.  However, I do not see that capability within Extract Multi Values to Points.  Am I missing something?

You can extract band information if it is an image

You can extract information from multiple rasters

But... any tabular information...which I presume you have joined, will not be extracted.

You might be able to join the extra tabular information that you need, since the tool, by design, extracts the cell value from the raster and a cell can only have one 'value'

Integer rasters can have additional attributes and as Dan suggests you can join these raster tables to the output point feature class then use CopyFeatures to persist the join.
