The current security context cannot be reverted. Please switch to the original database where 'Execute As' was called and try it again.

is it possible to, with a query, check which database originated the original 'execute as'. there are too many databases, and not sure which one was used.. any quicker way than trial and error?

No quicker way I know of. In your code, use master as switching db.

i e

use master
go
execute as login = 'aAccountHere'
use
specialDB
exec sp_dowhateverhere
use master
revert
