Filling histogram with errors

Hi, I’m sure this was asked before, but I cant find/understand the answer.
I have a set of measurements, each of it has a different error. I want to make histogram with proper errors. So I use Sumw2 option and Fill with errors as weights. But I don’t really want to weight my histogram, just estimate the errors correctly. How do I proceed? TProfile?

Best regards, Mariusz

Seems to me should fill your histogram with the normal weights … not with “errors as weights”. @moneta can confirm ?
