Key Fob compatibility

Greetings!

Hoping a member with a bit more experience could shed some light onto this subject for me. Do you have to purchase a key fob with a certain part # referenced to the VIN of your car in order for you to program it with your car or will any key fob from a similar year Ford Focus work?

The guy at the dealership said that even though the key fob part # I ordered off ebay doesn't correctly match my VIN it still could work because the part #'s have constantly changed and that the computer system doesn't have them all listed.

Am I making sense?

So I don't have to ensure that I buy a key fob with a certain part #? As long as it's from a Ford Focus it can be programmed with my car?
