Do I need to specify a range when I place a Limit Order?

When I place a Limit Order, I specify a max money value to purchase 100 shares. If I understand correctly, it may take 2 or 3 broker trades to fulfill the 100 shares. Is this correct? Do I need to specify a range in which to buy, even though I set a max?

When you set a limit order, the buy will occur at that price or lower. You need tp do nothing after you have placed the order.
