Help performing these steps >Sample >Display XY Data >Export Attribute Table

I have a manual process I'm trying to automate.  My question is mostly related to step 2, but I welcome any suggestion for any of the process I've described that may help me achieve my goal.  Thanks in advance!


The first part is dumping raster data:  Spatial Analyst Tools > Extraction > Sample > 


(Step 1) I've been able to do this piece with the following code:


import arcpy
from arcpy import env
from import *
# Set environment settings
env.workspace = r"c:\InputRasters"
# Set local variables
inRasters = ["b_inst"]
locations = r"c:\Grids\50ft_Grid.shp"
outTable = r"c:\TestTable"
sampMethod = "NEAREST"
# Check out the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extension license
# Execute Sample
Sample(inRasters, locations, outTable, sampMethod)


(Step 2) Now I need to Display the XY data and export attribute table to either a dbf or Excel spreadsheet.


This piece of code seems to be what I need, but it seems to require a .dbf file.  The script from the previous step didn't output a .dbf, it output a folder called "info" containing the following files: arc.dir (1 kb), arc0000.dat (7,022 kb), arc0000.nit (1 kb), and arc0000.xml (1 kb). 


(Step 3) Finally, I'm thinking I can use this technique to dump the resulting dbf to .xls
