Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function Prepare() on null in

Hello Ray
On my localhost pages using a mysqli recordset are working correctly.
but when I load these pages on to a remote server they fail with the error message
similar to:

Connection to MySQLi server successfully established.
Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function Prepare() on null in
/homepages/37/d415519235/htdocs/net100test/WA_DB234/BFSN_full/webassist/mysqli/rsobj.php:185
Stack trace: #0 /homepages/37/d415519235/htdocs/net100test/WA_DB234/BFSN_full/A_Manufacture/results.php(13):
WA_MySQLi_RS->execute() #1 {main} thrown in
/homepages/37/d415519235/htdocs/net100test/WA_DB234/BFSN_full/webassist/mysqli/rsobj.php on line 185

Can you see where I am going wrong please?
Thank you
John

You have hand coded your connection and named it differently than Dreamweaver does. Your connection file is named conn1_i.php but your connection is named $connect and not $conn1_i like it would be if you had you used Dreamweaver to create it.

Many thanks Ray,

Changing $connect to $conn1_i resolved the problem!

Out of interest how does one get Dreamweaver to create the connection name, maybe I missed this using Navicat?

You create a connection from the Databases window in dreamweaver. It creates the connection file and names it. Go to window->databases and add a connection from there.
