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'];
));
}

$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?

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!
