Oil for gearbox, Exxon H or Mercon V?

I am driving Escape 3.0 V6, XLT, 2004 (i am in Vietnam), i see the Warning Label in engine compartment indicated oil for gearbox is Exxon-H only. In fact, all garages are using Mercon V. So, just want to know what is the difference of Exxon H and Mercon V.

Appreciate your advice

Exxon H I believe is hydraulic oil and V is transmission fluid. Better stick with the H if that's what it calls for.

Mobil Nuto H Series Hydraulic Oil

Nuto H Series is a premium hydraulic oil for industrial and mobile service applications. It has good anti-wear
performance, which reduces pump wear, and fast air release for good foam control and water separability.
Corrosion protection provided by the Nuto H Series Hydraulic oil reduces the effect of moisture on system
components; high oxidation and chemical stability promotes long oil and filter life.

Nuto H is ideal for systems employing gear, vane ,radial and axial piston pumps, hydraulic applications where
contamination or leakage is unavoidable, and systems containing gears and bearings where mild anti-wear characteristics
are required. Nuto H hydraulic oil is also ideal for applications demanding thin oil film corrosion protection.

The book shows MERCON ATF which is no longer manufactured. Mercon V replaced it.

Should i understand the meaning of the label is: using the product from Exxon that meet H type standards? and in this case, Mercon V meets all H type standards?

I have read on another forum that H can be replaced with Mercon V. I recommend that you verify this with a mechanic before replacing the fluid. The forum I got the info from maybe wrong.
