[R] sample weights in ols

Hello all,

I am wondering if there is a way to specify sampling weights for an ols model using sample weights.

For instance, right now, my code is:

fit.ex<-lm(y~x1+x2+x3+...xk,data=dataset,weights=weightvariable.) summary(fit.ex)

But, there is almost no difference in the coefficients nor standard errors. I am skeptical that I am using the option correctly since many posts state that the "weights" option is for weighted least squares. Or is this the same thing?

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks

Carlos
