Attached PDF returns zero for all bookmark.pagnumber


Attached PDF returns zero for all bookmark.pagenumber. In acrobat when you click the bookmark, the viewer jumps to the correct page. I need to access the page number of each book mark. see file attached.

Where can I attach the pdf?

METHOD 1 Tried
Dim bookmarkEditor = New PdfBookmarkEditor()
Dim bookmarks = bookmarkEditor.ExtractBookmarks()

        For Each Bookmark As Aspose.Pdf.Facades.Bookmark In bookmarks
            Debug.WriteLine(pdf2Print.Destinations.GetPageNumber(Bookmark.Destination, False))

        For Each outlineItem As Aspose.Pdf.OutlineItemCollection In pdf2Print.Outlines
            Console.WriteLine(pdf2Print.Destinations.GetPageNumber(outlineItem.Title, False))
            Dim action As Aspose.Pdf.Annotations.GoToAction = New Aspose.Pdf.Annotations.GoToAction
            action.Destination = outlineItem.Destination ' New Aspose.Pdf.Annotations.XYZExplicitDestination(pdf2Print.Pages(1), 0, 0, zoom)
            pdf2Print.OpenAction = action


METHOD 2 Tried
For Each outlineItem As Aspose.Pdf.OutlineItemCollection In pdf2Print.Outlines
Console.WriteLine(pdf2Print.Destinations.GetPageNumber(outlineItem.Title, False))


I need to get the page of the bookmarks in this file. I can get the bookmark.pagenumber in other PDF files. I am uncertain why this PDF returns 0 for the pagenumber. I have looked through your knowledge base for hours with no success.
