For a detailed step by step process, refer to Toolbox 17.1 on page 741 (6th ed).

Does it matter the order of the molecules in the complex? Like for 7th edit 9C3d, would it matter if (OH2)2 came before or after (C2O4)2 when writing the coordinate complex formula?

Ligands should always be ordered alphabetically.

I'm pretty sure ligands are named alphabetically

The lecture notes say that when naming coordinate compounds, ligand names are alphabetical order and then the transition metal cation name is written after the ligand name.
