Question on using Prepared Statements with PHP's PDO

Here is the problem code:

                $categoryID = 1;
                $productCode = 's%';
               
                $db = new PDO('mysql:host=localhost;dbname=my_database',
                                  'username', 'password');
                   
                    $stmt = $db->prepare("SELECT * FROM products WHERE categoryID = :categoryID, AND productCode like :productCode");
                    $stmt->bindParam(':categoryID', $categoryID, PDO::PARAM_INT);
                    $stmt->bindParam(':productCode', $productCode, PDO::PARAM_STR);

                    $products = $db->execute();

When I run the above code, I keep getting an error saying "Fatal error: Call to undefined method PDO::execute()". Yet, when I google sample code for using prepared statements with PDO, they all use the execute() method.

Can someone tell me what's wrong, please? Thanks.

the execute() function is in the statement object, not the db object

ie

 $products = $stmt->execute();
