I have to import data from a csv file. And I get a structure data[[rows]]={first, second,...}.
Now I want to find the rows in which, say the first entry has a specific values.
By just looking at the data there are for example entries with value 0.785398.
But when I try Flatten@Position[data[[All,1]],0.785398] or with ToString[0.785398] I just get {}

What's the problem here?
