coordination number

Does the coordination number (which equals number of bonds) determine the complex?

Coordination Number is based off of the number of bonds to the central metal atom. The Complex is made up of the central metal atom and its ligands (which is connected by bonds). The bonds(Coordination #) don't exactly "affect" the Complex, it's more of a component thing.
