Please show the exact text of the error message, and which line of code it occurs on.

Your $conn variable is populated with the result of sqlsrv_connect() which is a resource and not a class. To use the $conn variable you'd need to use the sqlsrv_ functions, such as:
$results = sqlsrv_query($conn, "your query");

The methods that you're describing look like they're from the PDO[^] class, which you create using new PDO(..); instead.
