Your process consists of two steps. Until both of them are complete it can not be said as completed. That means, the final click on Done completes the process. In that case, if user goes back to the first step, the header should not change. User is still in the process of creating it. What happens if user abandons it on the second step?

The query would look like (pesudo): SELECT region_name FROM region WHERE region_id NOT IN ( SELECT region_id FROM upload_history WHERE upload_date < ...

This would take a more work, but I think it would be pretty slick if you could mimic the behavior in Mac Mail when searching through emails. You could just have one big search box and allow users to just type in keywords. For example, in Mac Mail you can type "from:John" and it will search for emails from John.
