How do I make this script work with PDO?

$conn = new PDO("mysql:host=$host;dbname=$db;charset=$charset", $user, $pass);

$conn->setAttribute(PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE, PDO::ERRMODE_EXCEPTION);

$conn->$sql = "SELECT * FROM `manufacturers` WHERE name = '$data[8]'";
foreach($pdo->query($sql) as $row1){

$statement = $conn->prepare("INSERT INTO manufacturers_sku (sku,manufacturer)
    VALUES(:sku, :manufacturer)");
$statement->execute(array(
    "sku" => $row1['sku'];
    "manufacturer" => $row1['sku'];
));
}

$conn = new PDO("mysql:host=$host;dbname=$db;charset=$charset", $user, $pass);

$conn->setAttribute(PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE, PDO::ERRMODE_EXCEPTION);

$results = $conn->prepare("SELECT * FROM `manufacturers` WHERE name = :data")
$results->execute(array(
	":data" => $data[8]
));
$rows = $results->fetchAll(); // Just one way to do it.


$myinsert = $conn->prepare("INSERT INTO manufacturers_sku (sku,manufacturer)
	VALUES(:sku, :manufacturer)");

foreach($rows as $row){
	$myinsert->execute(array(
		":sku" => $row['sku'],
		":manufacturer" => $row['sku'] // Shouldn't this be something else?
	));
}

A complete explanation of the transition process, including code examples, is available here.

OK got an error...

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '$results' (T_VARIABLE)

$results->execute(array(
      ":data" => $data[8]      //ERROR THIS LINE
));

How do I fix this error?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Theres a missing semi colon after this line

$results = $conn->prepare("SELECT * FROM `manufacturers` WHERE name = :data"); // add the semi colon like I have here

Why accept a comment that never answered the question or corrected your code, if you want a PDO tutorial there are far better places to go than some generic here's a one for all blah blah

I agree Gary!  I will take that into consideration next time.  I just wanted to reward the time and  effort to help.  You did get 450 points! The comments that just say "read this" and provide a link don't really help anyone.  If I could understand all that overly technical stuff with very little explanation,  I would not be paying to be on EE!!!  Thanks for helping me with my code!  Much appreciated!

There are some things about PHP which are kind of "sine-qua-non."  For example we have to assume that anyone asking about conversion to PDO and specifically asking about a SELECT query statement would understand that a PHP  "parse error" containing the word "unexpected" indicates an up-stream error in the script.  But if the real issue was a PHP parse error, why not just tell us that is your problem?  I'd have gladly helped you correct a parse error, too.  I just thought there was a PDO-related issue (a very common thing today, since MySQL is going to be killed off soon).

@Gary: If you have something to offer the E-E community that is better than my article, please post it - perhaps write your own article or add your comments to show what my article is missing.  I have a great appreciation of constructive criticism and welcome anything you want to add to the conversation!
