Replace string in XML file with awk/sed with string from another

Sorry for the long/weird title but I'm stuck on a problem I have. I have this XML file:

Code:
</member>
     <member>
      <name>TransactionID</name>
      <value><string>123456789123456</string></value>
     </member>
     <member>
      <name>Number</name>
      <value><string>765101293</string></value>
     </member>

There, I have to replace the "765101293" with another value from another file, file2:

Code:
765003448
765885388
764034143
784478101
762568592
769765134
767200702
769550613
784914007
762333840

So, the XML file will change at each new string from file2. I am not sure how to do this. I am thinking of first processing file2 with awk and then a pipe feeding into sed:

Code:
#! /bin/bash -f

var=`awk -F,"\n" '{print $0}' "$1"`
sed -i "/7[0-9]{8}/c\$var/" "$2"

However, this does nothing. Could anyone help me out?

I don't understand what output you are hoping to produce...

Do you want one output file for each line in file2? Do you want one output file with a copy of all of the text in your XML file for each line in file2?

What is the name of your XML file?

What is/are the desired name/names of your output file/files?

What are $1 and $2 in your script?
# 3  
So, I would like to update my XML file (Update.xml) with the data from file2. For the first line of file2, I will have to update the existing XML: instead of "765101293" i'll put the first line of file2 > 765003448. Then I'll move the xml somewhere else, and then I'll pass to the next line on file2. Repeat the process for all lines of file2. The two variables $1 and $2 I used when I run my script like this: ./script.sh file2 Update.xml. Hope this makes a bit more sense.
# 4  
Still not clear. In your sample, the first line is </member> indicating there's more to that file upfront, e.g. other <member> elements. Which one should be modified? The one and only containing exactly the string 765101293?

Do you need the entire Update.xml file copied to another path after each replacement? Or just that <member> element?
# 5  
There is more to the file, but the bit that I'm interested in and where I want to make the change is the one I supplied. At the end, I'll copy the whole file, not just that bit.
# 6  
Try this, which may not be the most efficient way, but, due to missing further details, ...:
Code:
while read var; do sed "s/765101293/$var/" Update.xml > file_$var; done < file2

# 7  
This works, but only for765101293; I've tried with multiple types of regex, but none have worked . I'll give more details about what I want it to do. I want to replace the string "76.." from this block
Code:
<name>subscriberNumber</name> <value><string>765101293</string></value>

with values from file2. Then, the xml will be copied somewhere else and the next value should be put there. For example, this will be the first iteration:
Code:
<name>subscriberNumber</name> <value><string>765003448</string></value>

; the second one:
Code:
<name>subscriberNumber</name> <value><string>765885388</string></value>

And so on; the xml will be overwritten everytime.

Also, here you can see the full xml file.

Code:
<methodCall>
 <methodName>UpdateOffer</methodName>
 <params>
  <param>
   <value>
    <struct>
     <member>
      <name>offerID</name>
      <value><i4>19</i4></value>
     </member>
     <member>
<name>startDate</name>
<value><dateTime.iso8601>20151028T14:11:00+0200</dateTime.iso8601></value>
</member>
     <member>
      <name>offerType</name>
      <value><i4>0</i4></value>
     </member>
     <member>
      <name>originHostName</name>
      <value><string>TEST</string></value>
     </member>
     <member>
      <name>originNodeType</name>
      <value><string>Prepaid</string></value>
     </member>
     <member>
      <name>originOperatorID</name>
      <value><string>operator</string></value>
     </member>
<member><name>originTimeStamp</name>
<value><dateTime.iso8601>20151028T14:16:36+0200</dateTime.iso8601></value>
</member>
     <member>
      <name>originTransactionID</name>
      <value><string>123456789123456</string></value>
     </member>
     <member>
      <name>subscriberNumber</name>
      <value><string>765101293</string></value>
     </member>
    </struct>
   </value>
  </param>
 </params>
</methodCall>
