After converting my C++ module from VS2000 to VS2003, I'm getting a compile error saying it can't find sqlfront.h.  What am I to do?

But I'm running SQL 2000.

Then install that SDK (you should still have it as you installed it for VS2003 also). MSDN has that, too: http://www.microsoft.com/sql/downloads/2000/default.mspx

However the SDKs are available as "2005" now.

I don't see the SQL 2000 SDK available for download.

Or, in other words: If you don't have your SQL 200 SDK any more, you will have to install SQL 2005.

Did you search the files under the installation directory?

Hmm, see http://www.sqlteam.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=59251

"Apparently, "sqlfront.h" and "sqldb.h" no longer exist. The old bulk
copy functions are now ODBC based and use the include "sqlncli.h" and
an ODBC handle instead of a DBPROCESS structure."

If you still had your "old" SQL 2000 SDK installer...
