Solitary-wave solutions are obtained numerically for the nonlinear Schrodinger equation with some additional terms, which describes the forced oscillation of certain surface waves on a fluid in a channel that is driven sinusoidally with time in a horizontal direction. The conditions on the drive amplitude and frequency necessary for the existence of solitary waves are determined.
