I am following the tutorial on Analysis Services Tabular Modeling here and at the lesson 3 I should found the ProductImage column in the Product table but it's missing ??
I searched for more recent AdventureWorksDW2012 on Codeplex but I already have the latest one. By the way, I found the AdventureWorksDW2012Images.zip file at the same place on Codeplex but could not find any instruction one how to install it ?
Would be nice if you could help understand...
Thanks in advanced

In AdventureWorksDW2012, the product images are in the dimProduct table under the LargePhoto column; LargePhoto has been the name of that column since the beginning of AdventureWorks DW.
Why is it that in the Tutorial it was decided to called differently, that I don't know. Possibly the writer of the tutorial tried to mention the product image column, in the tutorial, and it ended up being a one word that looks like a column name.
Hope this is helpful.
With my best regards,

On your main question, I posted the answer at the end of your conversation with Derrick.
About the AdventureWorksDW2012Images.zip file; this was a byproduct of another process around the sample database that the sample team considered important to preserve.
I understand there are other demos that use those images; but, I'm not sure what or where those demos are.
With my best regards,

Thanks for your answer,
LargePhoto and ProductImage are both in the article and LargePhoto column is useless there.
Anyway, I find logical that the tutorial of building a tabular database demonstrates ImageURL reporting property for furtur PowerView reports with the productimage column.
It sounds like the person who made the tutorial has worked with a different version of Adw database. Maybe there is something missing in the sql server samples project on codeplex.
Any further update on this issue?

I haven't forgotten about this topic. I’ll chat with the writer again next week. Sorry for the delay, I was out of office for a couple days.
