PHP/Mysqli Sum Problem

Good evening

I'm trying to determine the amount of winnings achieved by an individual horse in my database. I've recently changed over to Mysqli and am experiencing problems with finding the SUM. I'm getting a plain white page when I view the page.

<?php $result = mysqli_query($con,"SELECT SUM(prize) AS prizewinnings FROM runners WHERE h_link = '01335.php'"); while($row = mysqli_fetch_array($result)) { echo " <b>Career Winnings:</b>"; echo $row['SUM(prizewinnings)']; } ?>
I have two questions:
  1. The tutorials I've tried using for Mysqli haven't shown how to produce error messages for debugging - is this the same procedure as for mysql.
  2. What am I doing wrong with the code above?

Any advice gratefully received.

You should change:

echo $row['SUM(prizewinnings)'];

echo $row['prizewinnings'];

To show error messages generated by PHP, you can try to put "ini_set('display_errors', 1);" at the beginning of your script.

Don't the ' ' change the value of the integer to a string? I've been there and screwed that up before.
