    using (var reader = connection.ExecuteReader(sql))
    {
        var storeInvoiceParser = reader.GetRowParser<StoreInvoice>();
        var webInvoiceParser = reader.GetRowParser<WebInvoice>();

        while (reader.Read())
        {
            Invoice invoice;

            switch ((InvoiceKind) reader.GetInt32(reader.GetOrdinal("Kind")))
            {
                case InvoiceKind.StoreInvoice:
                    invoice = storeInvoiceParser(reader);
                    break;
                case InvoiceKind.WebInvoice:
                    invoice = webInvoiceParser(reader);
                    break;
                default:
                    throw new Exception(ExceptionMessage.GeneralException);
            }

            invoices.Add(invoice);
        }
