The ANSI-SQL syntax is to just use GRANT to create users. You will
still need to use GRANT twice for both users: joe@'%' and joe@'localhost'.
But I find the MySql syntax for creating user with CREATE USER and then
GRANT easier to follow:
CREATE USER joe@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'whateverpassword';
CREATE USER joe@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'whateverpassword';
GRANT ALL ON db1.* TO joe@'%';
GRANT ALL ON db1.* TO joe@'localhost';
If you see what I mean...
Just remember that a user always has a host, and you should always use
the two together.
