Return the index that contains a specific value?

My current situation:

I have an array, we'll call it "Array1[]". It contains the follow information:

 

[
   "Not the value",
   "Not the value",
   "Not the value",
   "The Value",
   "Not the value"
]

Due to the nature of Array1[], the "The Value" will be in a different index on every run.  What I am trying to figure out is how to find which index "The Value" is in (meaning, in this case, a function that would return "4").

 

I have tried to use filterArray() and got it to filter out all other indexies, is there someway I can use the output from filerArray() to derive the original index?

 

The reason I need this is that future operations will be dependent of relative indexies (e.g. If "The Value" is in Array1[4] then subtract Array1[3] from Array1[6])

 

I hope I explained it thourghly enough.

 

Thank you somuch for your help,
