What about this:

$res = PMA_mysql_query($sql_query, $dbh);
$row = mysql_fetch_array($res, MYSQL_ASSOC);
if (isset($row['Password'])) {
    $pw_key = 'Password';
} else if (isset($row['password'])) {
    $pw_key = 'password';
} else {
    $pw_key = FALSE;

$pw_key should now contain the correct column name for the password field or
FALSE is there is neither a "Password" nor a "password" field.
