I use SPSS and Limesurvey so will try to explain.
In SPSS > version 15 one of the columns in Variable View is Measure.
Here is where you define your data in terms of it being one of - Scale, Ordinal or Nominal.
I'm not sure what the default is but I don't stipulate so I guess I use the default which works perfectly.
The best is to make a test survey, add some responses and try it out.
