remove outdated data from Google cache

I would like to remove a site www.domainx.com from google cache. The problem is that when I use Remove URL tab under Crawler access in the webmaster tools, I am not offered the choice to remove the page only from google cache. Instead it only offers a choice to remove the page as long as my robots.txt file has a directive to block the website's content.

However, I do not want to block the website's content to prevent Google search spider from seeing it. I just want Google to remove some outdated data still appearing in some results of Google cache for this domainx.com

Any idea to do this?

Add the noindex metatag to the header of that specific page. That will block that one page.

Either go for no index meta tag

Or u can write fresh content and put redirect from older page to new page. Your new page will get all ranking benefit
