Fill the remainder of your record with blanks. The dots, as you should know, represent un-displayable characters. If you turn hex on you will see the actual values.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

The dots are not dots, they are just how the system shows you non-displayable characters. They are probably binary-zeros.

If you add ,80:X to your BUILD, an X (which is a blank) is placed in column 80. Any intervening colums which have to be created between your data and column 80 will be space-padded.

For you requirement:

//CTRCLCD1 EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD *
 OPTION COPY
 INREC BUILD=(1,16,SQZ=(SHIFT=LEFT,
                        LEAD=C'ACTION=LIST,RESOURCE=ADCOM,ADID=',
                        TRAIL=C',STATUS=A;',
                        LENGTH=80))
                                                                 
//SORTIN   DD *

AACBODQ
AACBOEQ
FGFTUJYHTRR
AACCHEQ
AACDCLQ

Don't just use it, you need to understand it. So do some research, then tell us what it does.

Yes..

you can add spaces at last
i.e after last ; you can fill with spaces by giving C' '
