I'm storing a series of records in an SQL 2000 database and I'm having trouble with storing midnight, 12:00 AM.  I'm passing in '12:00:00 AM' but for some reason it doesn't show up in the database.

>>but for some reason it doesn't show up in the database<<
I think you mean it is not displayed in Enterprise Manager.  It is in the database.

And I should have added, that if you go to Query Analyzer and do a select it will display as (for example)
2004-03-30 00:00:00

It may be in the database, and not showing up in Enterprise Manager, but it's not coming back when I pull a recordset either.

In Query Analyzer?  Show your code.
